El Morya's Bio-Beginning with Abraham, Father of Nations
Key Teachings by the Ascended Master El Morya

The Ascended Master El Morya

El Morya
An Ascended Master Who Embodies the Will of God

The name “El Morya” may be unfamiliar to some. But it is more than likely that millions have heard about one or more of his past lives. Because of his tenacious love of the will of God lifetime after lifetime, El Morya has come to embody the quality of obedience to holy will. Today he serves from heavenly realms as the Chohan1 of The First Ray2, the blue ray of God's will, faith, protection and power.
Obedience Brings Blessing
Abraham. His story is told in the first book of the Old Testament. Both Jewish and Christian children alike have heard the tale of God’s call to his obedient son. “Get thee out of thy country…and from thy father’s house unto a land that I will show thee.”God promised Abraham that his obedience would lead to blessing. He would be the progenitor of a great nation. Abraham left the house of his father. And God did bless him. Called the Father of Nations, Abraham, even in his advanced age, was sired a son, Isaac. From this lineage the Twelve Tribes of Israel emerged. El Morya was Abraham.
Camelot—a Vision of a Golden Age
In the fifth century, a ruler of mythical proportion enters life’s stage. Arthur was the creator of the Table Round, a culture of brotherhood whose rallying cry was, “All for one and one for all!” His holy knights were reputed for their bravery in battle and service to their monarch and his kingdom. No myth, this noble soul forged a glorious society where respect, justice, courage and truth prevailed—the mystical Camelot. El Morya was King Arthur.
The Price of a Principled Life—Thomas Becket and Thomas More
Twelfth century England finds the soul of El Morya incarnated as Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, defender of the church and at odds with King Henry II. Conflict regarding the influence of the church in the political affairs of the realm rise to a fever pitch. And Becket pays for his stand with his very life, brutally slain within the environs of his own cathedral by four knights performing the king’s bidding.
Three centuries later, El Morya returns as Thomas More, Chancellor of England, during the reign of Henry VIII. And once again the soul of El Morya finds himself at loggerheads with the king of England. The same conflict of church and state arises, clothed in different circumstances. Separation from his family, years of imprisonment and finally a sentence of death by decapitation bring to a dramatic end in 1535 yet another embodiment of this unflinching soul. Thomas More’s final words to all who witnessed his execution were, “I am the king’s good servant, but God’s first.”
Akbar, Mogul Emperor—An Attempt to Foster Spiritual Brotherhood
A mere seven years later, El Morya returns—this time to embody in the East. He is Akbar, the greatest of the Mogul emperors. A ruler with refined qualities and varied talents, Akbar increased his kingdom through decisive action in battle but also diplomacy. He raised its culture through art, literature and architecture. Interested in all religions and religious practices but not the conflict they aroused, he desired to unify believers into one religion which he called the “Divine Faith.”
Service from the Heavenly Realms           
In the nineteenth century, El Morya, while residing in the spirit plane, collaborated with two other unascended masters4—Djwal Kul5 and Kuthumi6—to work through Madame Helena Blavatsky7 and others in order to teach occult mysteries to a larger body of mankind. The founding of The Theosophical Society8 by Blavatsky in 1875 would be a major vehicle for this purpose.
Lifetime after lifetime, love for the will of God was the driving force of El Morya’s soul, even to the laying down of his physical life as Becket and More. The striving of this “Man for All Seasons” won him his ascension9 in 1898. Today, El Morya is the chief of the Darjeeling Council, a heavenly governing body who serves in an etheric retreat over Darjeeling, India. He works with many other ascended masters—Chananda, Kuthumi, Saint Germain, Jesus, Mother Mary, to name some—for the upliftment of mankind and an instilling within their hearts of a similar love for the will of God.
El Morya Teaches Us the Way to Know Life’s Purpose
In a recent HeartStream10 from June 13th, 2008, El Morya said, “Many desire to know their life's purpose. Few desire to know that purpose within the context of the will of God. And fewer still are able to let go of the human will fully to be absorbed into the heart of God's will through the sacred science and art of surrender. Those who meditate on God's love, wisdom and will within, day and night, create a sacred portal for their life's purpose to be fully outpictured."
Read now the words of this beloved master as he expounds on such topics as the nature of God, the Buddha, heartstreaming, the purpose of the rosary and the meaning of darshan.
1. “Chohan” is a Sanskrit word for “chief” or “lord.” A chohan is the spiritual leader of great attainment who works with mankind from the ascended state. There are seven chohans for the earth—El Morya, Lanto, Paul the Venetian, Serapis Bey, Nada and Saint Germain.
2. The first ray is the ray of God’s will. The ascended masters teach that the seven rainbow rays are the seven qualities of God that compose the color rings or spheres which surround the Solar Presence. The attribute of each color, or ray, is vital to our wholeness. The seven rays are God-qualities that appear as color vibrations. Each person in embodiment is meant to master these qualities:
  •  Blue—the first ray: the will of God, faith and power
  • Yellow—the second ray: wisdom and understanding
  • Pink—the third ray: divine love and compassion
  • White—the fourth ray: purity and holiness
  • Green—the fifth ray: wholeness and abundance
  • Purple/gold—the sixth ray: service to life
  • Violet—the seventh ray: forgiveness, mercy and soul-freedom
3. Genesis 12:1-2
4. An unascended master is one who could ascend but has chosen to remain close to the earth in order to assist more directly its evolutions. In the East such a being is termed a bodhisattva.
5. Djwal Kul, also called “Master D.K.” or “The Tibetan,” is known in esoteric circles for his embodiment as a Tibetan master and also as an ascended being who assists planetary evolution. He was introduced to a wider audience through the writings of Madame Helena Blavatsky, co-founder of the Theosophical Society. Messenger of the Great White Brotherhood, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, revealed that Djwal Kul had been embodied as one of the three wisemen, Caspar. Through The Summit Lighthouse and The Hearts Center, Djwal Kul has taught the importance of the holy breath and forms of breathing that promote spiritual and physical well-being and progress. To hear the entirety of Djwal Kul’s message on union with the God within, click Djwal Kul, February 18, 2008.
6. Kuthumi, an ascended master serving on the yellow ray of illumination was embodied as Saint Francis of Assissi. Master psychologist, his assistance may be invoked as we work on subconscious as well as conscious patterns of behavior that limit our ability to outpicture our true nature of compassion for all life. He serves now as World Teacher with Jesus.
7.  Madame Helena Petrova Blavatsky (1831-1891), born into Russian aristocracy, was an occultist possessing from early childhood psychic abililties. During one of her sojourns in Tibet, she was commissioned by certain masters to share occult knowledge with a larger body of students East and West.  
8. The Theosophical Society was established in 1875 in New York City by Madame Blavatsky with the assistance of Col. Henry Steel Olcott (1832-1907) and William Q. Judge (1851-1896) for the purpose of compiling and teaching the occult sciences. The name of the society is derived from “theosophy,” a Neoplatonic term meaning"Divine Wisdom." The Theosophical Society currently has its international headquarters at Adyar, Madras, India. The Theosophical Society of America has its headquarters in Wheaton, Illinois and its British affiliate in London.
9. The ascension is complete liberation from the rounds of karma and rebirth. In the ascension process the soul becomes merged with her Solar Presence, experiencing freedom from the gravitational, or karmic, pull of the earth and entering the bliss of beingness within God’s eternal presence of divine love.
10. HeartStreams are up-to-the-minute messages from the ascended masters through their anointed messengers in The Hearts Center movement. These messages vibrate with the masters’ love and wisdom and anchor light in the earth as they are being delivered and when they are replayed in audio or video format. They teach, exhort, bless, uplift and direct us in specific actions needed to assist not only ourselves but our planet.
El Morya's HeartStream Messages

El Morya's Message to South African Heartfriends

The Lord would have me read from Jeremiah 14:

The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah concerning the dearth.

2 Judah mourneth and the gates thereof languish; they are black unto the ground and the cry of Jerusalem is gone up.

3 And their nobles have sent their little ones to the waters: they came to the pits and found no water; they returned with their vessels empty; they were ashamed and confounded and covered their heads.

4 Because the ground is chapt, for there was no rain in the earth, the plowmen were ashamed; they covered their heads.

5 Yea, the hind also calved in the field and forsook it because there was no grass.

6 And the wild asses did stand in the high places; they snuffed up the wind like dragons; their eyes did fail because there was no grass.

7 O Lord, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou it for thy name's sake: for our backslidings are many; we have sinned against thee.

8 O the hope of Israel, the savior thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?

9 Why shouldest thou be as a man astonied, as a mighty man that cannot save? Yet thou, O Lord, art in the midst of us, and we are called by thy name; leave us not.

10 Thus saith the Lord unto this people. Thus have they loved to wander; they have not refrained their feet; therefore the Lord doth not accept them; he will now remember their iniquities and visit their sins.

11 Then said the Lord unto me, Pray not for this people for their good.

12 When they fast, I will not hear their cry, and when they offer burnt offering and an oblation, I will not accept them, but I will consume them by the sword, and by the famine, and by the pestilence.

13 Then said I, Ah, Lord God! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine, but I will give you assured peace in this place.

14 Then the Lord said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name. I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them. They prophesy unto you a false vision and divination and thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.

15 Therefore thus saith the Lord concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; by sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them—them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

17 Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them: Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow.

18 If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! And if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine! Yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not.

19 Hast thou utterly rejected Judah? Hath thy soul loathed Zion? Why hast thou smitten us, and there is no healing for us? We looked for peace, and there is no good; and for the time of healing, and behold trouble!

20 We acknowledge, O Lord, our wickedness and the iniquity of our fathers: for we have sinned against thee.

21 Do not abhor us, for thy name's sake; do not disgrace the throne of thy glory. Remember, break not thy covenant with us.

22 Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? Or can the heavens give showers? Art not thou he, O Lord our God? Therefore we will wait upon thee, for thou hast made all these things.

Although I would not have spoken on the subject, El Morya desires that I speak. The Hearts Center has sent me three times to South Africa, Debra Timberlake four times, and we have invested over $63,000 dollars in our heartfriends there—in Cape Town and in Johannesburg. We have done great things together in the past, had events there, even as late as a year ago in the summer. Yet there is a famine, a plague, a drought in the Cape Town area. Why is this? The Master said, through me, recently that it is partly because of the corruption of the government led by Zuma, one of the most corrupt upon the face of the Earth. This being has stolen the riches, the wealth, the supply of that people, and he has already been singled out and judged by the Lord God.

Yet there is also an atmosphere of anger, an atmosphere of fear in the hearts of a few that has brought about this dynamic. We have paid for a number of souls to go to South America from South Africa twice. We paid virtually all of the expenses. In South America in 2012, we had a wonderful time under Lake Titicaca, which became the retreat of Lanello and Clare de Lis, who took the place of the God and Goddess Meru, who in turn went to the sun to take the office in hierarchy of Helios and Vesta, who in turn moved on to a world, a star system near the center of our galaxy.

The masters, through me, asked that the heartfriends in South Africa conduct Meru University courses free of charge, or at least we provided them free of charge. And for four years, the masters' request was unheeded. I brought this fact up in a number of council meetings to our representative from that area, who is also the president of the international council. In response, there was anger; there was a lack of commitment to the masters through me. And yet we have given so much to the heartfriends there and invested so much of your hard-earned money—over $60,000.

The Afra book cost us somewhere in the realm of between $20 and $28,000 to accomplish for our community. A couple of years ago, a precious heartfriend donated $20,000 dollars to our activity, and El Morya was very interested in supporting the expansion of the work in South Africa. I called two precious heartfriends and spoke to them of this dynamic, and they were very intrigued by it and hoped that all that money would come to support their work. Later, however, when I spoke to the heartfriend who had given the money, it was determined that half of it should be spent to support our Spanish-speaking mission throughout the world in publications translated into Spanish. And that was only natural because this person had a tie to the Spanish-speaking world.

So not all of that money would be invested in South Africa—half of it. We met in our council chambers and we determined to support the mission in South Africa, and it was our great joy to offer this great, great abundance for that mission. Subsequently, because of circumstances and possibly opposition, a venue that had been used in a prior year for us to have a booth in Cape Town, at a racetrack, was taken away from us, and I already had my ticket to go and to be with our precious heartfriends there. And so it was not to be, a year and a half ago—actually, this was last year, I believe. I'd been there a year and a half ago.

So one thing led to the next, and the end result of all of this, which El Morya would like to bring to the attention of our entire membership, as well as to the South African heartfriends, is that the president of the international council resigned after Lady Kristine's HeartStream, which was very intense—and I admit it—calling to task some who had not been gentle and kind in their communications with various heartfriends, not been respectful of the home where events and services were being held, listening to their needs, their family needs, et cetera. There was a harshness and a top-down, almost dictatorial, type of management and leadership, which was not acceptable to El Morya, to the Great White Brotherhood and to our sponsoring masters of The Hearts Center movement.

So Lady Kristine poured out her heart to these heartfriends and asked them to change and to consider how they would treat one another, and to follow the round-table approach, where everyone has value, everyone has a voice. When this HeartStream happened and the person resigned, it was very difficult for me because, as I shared, we had invested so much, so much in that dispensation and movement. What were we to do? Who would we turn to? I wished that I had been able to speak heart-to-heart, personally, with every heartfriend and tell them how cherished they were, how valuable they are to the masters. One in particular, a beautiful younger lady whom I met the last time I went—she hosted us at her home—was distraught at what she felt the message was saying to her. In fact, the message was not to her; it was to some of the leaders.

There was a sense of ingratitude, a sense of knowing more than the masters through me. And so there is now a nonbelief that that was Lady Kristine and a nonbelief that El Morya had spoken through me about various actions that we have taken and have decided to take at the council level.

I've intended to write a letter, and I asked on two or three occasions that we have a town-hall-type meeting, where everyone could speak. The leader there said, “No, there are only a few negative people; there is no reason to have this.” And yet I knew the truth, because I had been in direct communication with some who poured their hearts out to me about the situation.

We are at a critical junction as to whether The Hearts Center mission will actually continue in South Africa at all. There are two Hearts Centers that right now are not acting like Hearts Centers, and the masters are withholding me delivering dictations and HeartStreams through them because of the dynamic of the attitude of some.

So this is the day that El Morya is saying that if you continue in your ways, the drought will continue—both the physical drought that you've experienced and the drought of not having the word of the ascended masters, through this current viable dispensation of The Hearts Center community, to you who have received so much of the hard-earned money, tithes and donations given by heartfriends throughout the world.

As some of us considered the dynamic of why people do not have money in South Africa, it became very clear to some of us that it is because you are not following the law of the tithe; you are actually not following the directive of El Morya, as Abraham—Melchizedek's directive to tithe locally and give. And therefore you don't have the resources to support the growth of the movement in that area. You can blame the economy, you can blame situations outside of yourself, and yet for those of us who do tithe, we know the law—we know that it works; we know that we have all the abundance we require. No matter what country we live in, no matter what our economy is like, when we give, we receive.

I will not speak to every dynamic, about everything that I know, because that would be less than optimal. However, El Morya is reaching out to all of the heartfriends in South Africa—the Cape Town area, Johannesburg, Pretoria, everywhere—and saying, “If you would like to receive the current progressive revelatory teaching through this dispensation, through this anointed messenger, you can let us know. We can regroup; we can start again; we can have our meeting; we can communicate at the round table and decide this is what we desire.”

I am, as the masters have shared, an anointed messenger of the Great White Brotherhood for the Earth. My primary mission is the United States; my secondary mission is to Latin American countries. Yet I've been to thirty-three nations around the world, including Ghana, South Africa, Egypt, and my heart is also in Africa. My physical heart from a past life resides under a tree in the soil in Africa, and I can tell you that my heart has bled in the last couple of years for what is transpiring. And it is bleeding even more for the fact that because of the anger and the attitude, which has clouded the very being of a precious heartfriend and possibly others, many of you are being limited from receiving the masters' words now, when that was your choice before. Why have your choices changed?

El Morya has withdrawn my support and The Hearts Center's support of any individuals who criticize me in emails and in other ways. That is the law; as soon as you become critical you lose your connection with the dispensation. I've known this for decades, because I've seen it in previous dispensations. Those who become critical lose the tie to that dispensation's messenger, to the Great White Brotherhood. They may have their own attunement, and that's fine. They may have their own direct contact with the masters, and that's fine. I'm speaking of through this dispensation, this authorized nexus for the release of progressive revelatory teaching.

So for those of you who will see this message or hear it, you can let us know what your desires are. We can have new leadership. El Morya has desired that there be a separate Hearts Center leadership or board in Cape Town and in Johannesburg—not one that stretches over both, because they are separate areas that are viable in their own environment and with their own personnel.

Part of the dynamic, I believe, of why things fell apart was that one particular individual was giving advice for those in Johannesburg that was inappropriate. And the board should be the board in each city, just as in the United States and throughout the world. We have our individual councils or boards of directors for specific Hearts Centers.

It is very difficult for me to share this, yet the spirit of Jeremiah is upon me; the light of the prophet is here. El Morya and the sponsoring masters of our Hearts Center will continue to sponsor what we do from here and broadcast it throughout the world, regardless of who listens. Our mission is our mission; we give freely, lovingly.

To have the Meru University classes available for free that we previously charged for in the United States was such a great gift from the Great White Brotherhood. Yet they ignored that gift and that request, except for maybe three classes that were given in the last couple of years—the Aura class and the Saint Germain on Alchemy classes—after so much was invested, so you can see why the masters pulled back. You can see why they said, “Well, if they're not responding, why continue to release light. They have to respond.”

Yes, you have your mission there for your people and your nation, and it is your responsibility to follow your inner guidance to support and pray for your nation, because I cannot spend all of my time focusing on Africa or South Africa. And you live there—you live, move and have your being there—and you are the ones who are responsible for your nation as the lightbearers of South Africa. Yet I can tell you that Afra himself, El Morya himself, Saint Germain himself have invested so much, and when that investment is not honored and there is not a reciprocal givingness, then the masters withdraw. And when people do not tithe after they know the law of the tithe, your abundance will recede. You can tithe locally there; you don't have to give your money to the central Hearts Center. And when you tithe, then your centers will grow. You have to give, no matter whether it's a widow's mite or whatever it may be.

If you are on a fixed income and you are retired and you tithed during your entire life on what your income was and the government took a certain portion from you, or whatever, then when the money comes as part of your retirement, you are not required to tithe. You can if you desire, because I know that that money will grow and expand. Yet if you tithed all the way along in your life—as I have since I was nineteen years old—then you will be fine. It's really your choice what to do with the light that you receive, the dispensations, the graces, the five thousand-plus HeartStreams that we've received through this dispensation. It's freely given; we do charge for some events and classes, yet ultimately the teaching is free. We only have to pay for the delivery of it.

So I am reaching out from my heart to you all and saying, if you desire again to receive the words of the masters, let me know. Communicate to, and then we will talk, and hopefully there can be resolution and we can come to a new day of loving understanding, of brother/sisterhood, of collaboration and cooperation. Yet it has to be a two-way street. It can't just be that we are sending you money that's being gobbled up by one or two and not being used the way the masters had hoped, to really spread the teachings through the dynamics of events and paying for a venue, et cetera. It was never El Morya's intent for the money be spent by primarily one individual. And yet that's what was desired, and that is pretty much what has happened.

So this is the word of El Morya and me, in combination. And he's standing before each disciple in South Africa and giving you the opportunity to share whether you would like to receive our messages live regularly, once a month, or maybe even more often. And so this is the day of reckoning, and God bless you.
