The Difference between Meeting Human versus Divine Expectations
Good morning everyone. This morning El Morya would like to discourse with us on a very important topic, and that is the difference between meeting human versus divine expectations. It is never possible to meet human expectations from the point of the ego and the dweller-on-the-threshold that is the conglomerate of the human will. Therefore we should put our expectations upon and within God in order to meet divine expectations.
We will always come short in meeting another's human expectation, and therefore there is no sense in attempting to mitigate, mollify or meet human will, human wishing. This does not mean that we do not have plans or that in our workday we do not strive to fulfill our goals, objectives, initiatives and the expectations of those to whom we must answer. Yet within the context of our work we must not sublimate the God-flame within us in order to attempt to meet the ego's expectations.
Therefore, you can work and you can strive and you can be all that you can be on behalf of those whom you are serving, looking to the God-flame within them and within the greater mission of your work. Yet you must never bow to the dweller within another or compromise the integrity of your office, your station in life, your mission as a servitor of fire on behalf of the Universal Great White Brotherhood. To do so sets you apart from the field in the vibration and the aura and the ring of protection of that brotherhood, because you then lower the vibration of your being in order to attempt in some way to meet the human needs of another.
We compromise in many ways to simply live in this dimension, and we can count the ways that we compromise. Now, at times we must compromise what we see from our own perspective in order to meet the greater needs of the whole, the team and the greater work at hand. Yet this compromise is one of looking at the totality of the perspective of all involved in order to move forward an initiative and a plan. To do this we must bow to the Christ Light within the vision of others in order to work as a round-table team, because we do not from our own individual perspective have the full objective view, as God has it, of every nuance of the complete picture. Therefore, it takes the perspective of many to bring about the greater vision that together we are both creating and then fulfilling. Yet again, this compromise is toward the integrity and the integration of the whole rather than sublimating the Divine within us toward the human ego.
It's a very subtle thing when someone comes to us and attempts, through a very sinewy and serpentine logic, to get us to move into a field of thinking and feeling that is not divine in its essence, that is not part of the greater plan of a community, of a team, of a group effort. At times individuals attempt to draw us through sympathy onto the six o'clock line and to move us into the emotional field with their own human creation. If we see this for what it truly is, it is diabolical, because it is attempting to draw down our light from our focus on the vision in the third eye into a syrupy and very astral vibration.
The compromise that heaven makes is one born of awareness and consciousness. There are laws governing the universe that all ascended masters must honor and attend to in their decision making. They cannot abrogate these laws in order to interfere with the free will of mankind in their sacred work. There are limits even to what ascended beings can do with us in inspiring us and in attempting to move forward a greater plan and mission upon the Earth. And so we see the outpicturing of karma as a manifestation of this limited field that the ascended masters can move through in their work with us. They cannot simply wipe away disease, sin, death and unconsciousness in mankind. They must work through conscious individuals to raise the consciousness of mankind into greater levels of awareness, illumination, enlightenment.
Therefore, when an ascended master receives a dispensation as a grant of energy to move forward an initiative, it is incumbent upon him to safeguard that dispensation through those who are the servitors who will work to accomplish that dispensation. And when some come and in all well meaning say, “Yes, I will do this work,” in an hour when the ascended masters are present in a dictation and they ask us to back them and to work; and then those individuals forget the intensity of their statement that they will support the master and they fall back into patterns of unconsciousness, this is problematic for the master—because to secure that grant and that dispensation takes, as it were, great “sweating of blood”1 of ascended master light-energy. And at times the master may have to surrender a jewel or some aspect of attainment if the chelas and the disciples do not fulfill their calling and accomplishing that dispensation or that project.
Recently I was in Mount Shasta and Saint Germain gave a very fiery dictation. And a number of people stood up, created a ring of fire and said that they would support the establishing of a Hearts Center, and yet there is virtually nothing happening in that area right now in terms of ongoing meetings and the work at hand that the master envisioned when he brought the messenger and a number of us there to begin a new spiral of light. People tend to graduate back to where they have been, back to the comfortability of living in a certain vibration. It takes effort, it takes conscious application, it takes self-sacrifice and striving to work with others and to compromise your personal time for the greater good of the whole to begin and to really move forward a new spiral of light.
We've seen this dynamic over the years, and individually we can speak of this dynamic within our own beings, because we get excited, we get fortified by the light of the dictations and the master's coming, we feel the energy of the group and the whole, which is always greater than the sum of its parts and the individuals themselves, and we receive dispensations. But we must be reminded, we must come together again and again to move forward the plan. And at times, when there comes a time when the timetable of the ascended masters is not being met because of various decisions by individuals or because of certain circumstances, the ascended masters may either withdraw the dispensation or move it to another location and try to work through other individuals.
Now, a dynamic occurred at the Wellspring Retreat, where Mother Mary came early in 2005 and gave many, many dictations. She released incredible dispensations of light, talked about the building of this retreat, and talked about many aspects of the healing work that is to ensue. And yet, to date something is missing, something is not there that could have allowed us to precipitate the fullness of the plan of the Brotherhood for this area.
We each need to discern what within us is lacking, what is in compromise of divine principles or is a lowering of standards of behavior or vibration that has allowed inroads of either darkness or energies that can assail and work against the greater mission. And this is not to put blame on any one individual or two individuals or even a group, but it is something we all need to work on and decide what within us is in compromise of Mother Mary and the masters' vision for this property as well as any other project or mission that we are involved in. There is no blame, shame, and we are beyond that. But it's within our own awareness that we must step back at times and look at the totality of what is occurring and see what is limiting us, what is attempting to use anything within us individually that could abrogate or undo the great plan that the Brotherhood has.
There may come a time, and it could be very soon, when the masters say this cycle is up and if something is not accomplished and plans are not fulfilled by a certain date, they will withdraw the dispensation and move on elsewhere. Recently we were given a warning that this may occur right here at the Wellspring Retreat in Montana. It has not been publicly stated, yet I am bringing this before you today from the heart of El Morya because he is a great self-sacrificing one who is one of the sponsors of this movement along with the Great Divine Director, Lanello, Mother Mary, and now Lord Lanto. If you look at who is sponsoring this movement, you will get keys into determining the end result and the goals of this dispensation. Mother Mary, El Morya, the Great Divine Director, very cosmic beings who have great plans for not only this movement but for the Earth itself and for many, many thousand of disciples of the Spirit.
We received word that Mother Mary would come whenever there are twelve present. I spoke of this on a number of occasions. We know that we could have greater abundance for this retreat if Mother Mary would come when twelve are present, and yet there has not been the self-sacrifice. I have to remind people to put out telephone trees or whatever it takes in order for Mother Mary to come. Now, graciously and gratefully she came this past Sunday, and we received the benefit of her coming through a beautiful teaching. Yet she desires to release much more—much more abundance, much more consciousness and flow such that this retreat can fulfill its purpose.
Some come every day or virtually every day, and they are there day after day. Others only show up when they are called upon or when some special event or potluck happens. This will not get us to where we need to go. So I am putting out the plea to everyone locally that if you desire this Hearts Center of Paradise Valley to fulfill its purpose and you desire a healing retreat of Mother Mary, there has to be better dedication by those in the local area, and there has to be a give and take. The time is coming and is now when, unless certain things are accomplished, it is very, very possible that the entire dispensation for what Mother Mary envisioned may be withdrawn or moved elsewhere. This may seem dire and drastic and radical, yet I can tell you the cycles are moving on.
The Brotherhood has its mandates, and we have been given blessing upon blessing, dispensation upon dispensation. And when individuals here and there decide to leave off of their spiritual practice and move elsewhere into other activities, then there is a lessening of the vibration, the intensity of the light that's being released, and it's a dynamic that we cannot ignore.
Many of you participating on the broadcast are praying and giving your all, day after day. And for this the ascended masters, the sponsoring masters, are grateful. Because you are conscious participants in this alchemy, you are receiving and you will continue to receive the blessing and the boon and the graces that come because of your participation. Yet there is something more that we must collectively do. And if we can individually discern this and see where we may have compromised in our own individual pathway—we may have lowered standards, we may have in some way not fulfilled the absolute pinnacle of completeness of what we know we are here to do—then we can step back and make amends, atonement and see what we can do to accomplish this.
Many directives have been given. And I remind the leadership of the local Hearts Center in Montana, in Paradise Valley, to really look at what has been asked for and see what can yet be fulfilled—and not to just do the same things that we do because we like to do them; to look at what the masters require and what it will take to really move us forward. It's not just prayers and daily prayer sessions that will get us there, although these are absolutely important. At times it requires meetings, planning and a concerted effort that will require specific calls that may not be on the broadcast or that may only be broadcast to heartfriends that are at a level of commitment that these calls and invocations can ring through with the specificity that is required.
We are moving into a new era right now with vibration education coming through Meru University. This teaching will be so essential for many of us to understand and to utilize and to practice that I can't even tell you how important it is that you consider registering for this next class, beginning a week from yesterday, and prepare your awareness to be greater receptors for the secret-ray energies that are flowing.
We have at this time sixty-six going to India. The masters have asked for eighty-eight. If there are any of you out there who in some way can move heaven and earth to still attend, contact __________. It's almost too late at this point; however, miracles can occur and we can see if we can accommodate you.
I'd also like to speak on another topic and that is the personal life of the messenger. Some people feel that it is their prerogative to know a lot about what either I or others do in private. It is problematic to expect that I would communicate my personal life, what I do in private, in a very public way. I honor people's desires from a divine sense but not from the human sense, when it is simply a curiosity or something that someone desires to know for gossip's sake.
So please be understanding of this not only for me but for any public figure or anyone who is in a leadership role. Honor the integrity of the space of their private lives. Really keep within the circle of hallowed beingness that which is sacred for yourself and honor and respect the sanctity of the private space and private time of another. And do not try to inveigle yourself in their affairs. This curiosity is simply all coming from the human ego.
None of us really has anything to hide, because our auras speak volumes, as Morya said, and what we do in private will be shouted from the housetops.2 What we do and attempt to hide, God sees, and therefore none of us can hide away from the Divine, because we are divine. But there's the human element and aspect of our awareness that seeks to find out and know things all for the purpose of fulfilling its own ego-desire rather than what is really required or necessary to know.
This past Sunday, those of you who were attending the broadcast heard at the end of our service an announcement. I am gratified that many of you have shared your joy and my happiness and the happiness of my new friend and companion. Yet please be aware of the energies that flow through your feeling world, your awareness, and be respectful that we all have private lives, we all have things that we know that we must do, and it's really not anyone's business what we do in private. Again, this request is not to hide anything but to ask that you simply be respectful and honoring.
I wanted to make this point because it's come up a few times since Sunday. And I desire to just share with you my feeling on this so that we can all honor and love each other in public and also respect the individual privacy that's necessary.
This sharing is a little bit of what is on the heart of the master in this hour and what's on my heart. I send love and the love of Mother Mary and El Morya, the sponsoring masters, to each and every one. Let us really do all that we can do in this hour to look at the greater plan and to step back and see what we may be doing in our lives that's not working toward the highest purpose. Let's see if we can put some things aside toward that greater purpose and fulfill the greater mission of the Brotherhood. God bless you. Have a wonderful day, and hopefully we'll be communicating with you tomorrow.
