About 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 I will show thee.”3 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 masters4Djwal 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 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.

The Eight Pillars of the Life of the Initiate

Another teaching that I'd like to share today is from El Morya also, and you can take notes if you'd like. It's on the eight pillars of the life of the initiate. These kind of move through the eight rays, and it's very obvious it's not brand-new teaching. It's just clarifying what we already know. Yet all of these eight pillars are important for the balance in our lives and are required in order for us to make progress in every area of our lives. So I'll list them, and then eventually we will post them in a blog for you to read, plus a link to this talk.

The first pillar is the pillar of the mission, the divine plan, the dharma through work, a very active blue-ray action or activity—our mission, our divine plan, our dharma manifest through our work. So this would be our job and our vocation, our sacred calling. And this is the primary thing that we are actively engaged in throughout our life, even though our work may change when we work on many jobs. Our mission, our divine plan, the work of our hands, whatever our service to life is as our mission, that's number one.

The second pillar is, of course, education and study, ongoing reading of sacred scripture, delving into the inner truth of the ancient mysteries. All of this is a yellow-ray activity—education, study, reading the scriptures, delving into truth through the ancient mystery traditions, East and West. Ongoing education throughout your entire life is important. You have to continue learning and growing through that learning. So become educated, knowledgeable and wise—self-realized through wisdom.

The third pillar is creative prayer and devotion, worship of God. It can also involve the artistry of the third ray of divine love through creative prayer, devotion, adoration and worship of God. Now, not everyone may feel that they are an artist, yet everyone can be creative when they pray, when they enter into devotion to God using I AM affirmations and worshiping God with their entire being. So this is a third-ray activity of adoration, love and the artistry of this entire endeavor.

The fourth pillar involves clearing—continuous transmutation through the clearing of ourselves, including exercise and fasting. The fourth ray of purity is involved in this. We are continually purifying ourselves through various yogic practices, et cetera, whereby we desire to be cleaner, clearer and freer through that cleansing process. And this does involve exercise. Various forms of exercise strengthen us, make us more yang to be able to deal with the white-ray energy of Spirit, as the intense fire of the ascension.

The fifth pillar is related to the science of healing, and specifically, the Master says, through right diet and nutrition and re-creation in nature. It's important to be in nature, in the greenery of nature to partake of the emerald ray, the fifth ray. There is a science to this healing, and it is very important that we self-assess and that we work on right diet and nutrition, know the facts to discern the truth of proper diet, which is unique for every individual. Not everyone should have the same diet, of course. So there is a science to this, and you will discern, through the application of your mind and the blue-ray focus of will in combination with the emerald ray, how to facilitate this state of wholeness throughout your entire being.

The sixth pillar is related to being the helper through service, volunteerism and ministration. All of us, at one time or another throughout our life, can be involved in volunteering and giving selflessly in some way to aid the Holy Spirit, who is also called the Helper. We minister to life; we visit the sick; we help people in need; we give alms to the poor; we visit people who are dying through hospice work; we volunteer for a nonprofit—The Hearts Center or other 501(c)(3)s. We give selflessly through this service. We have to fulfill some aspect of this during our lives, and most of us have. And if you haven't done much of this, engage, because you will build up the purple-and-gold band in your causal body and fulfill this pillar on the path of givingness through service, ministration, volunteerism, helping others.

The seventh pillar is a little more mystical and it involves divine magic, alchemy—the alchemy of holy projects that we engage in, both individually and collectively—and drama. The seventh-ray era is an age of divine drama. And so for some this may involve getting into acting or drama that brings an understanding of the dynamics of the spiritual life into play through that drama.

So we learn from Saint Germain about alchemy. We become alchemists through using divine magic, through vision boards and treasure maps that help us to focus the light on the various needs or requirements of ourselves, our organizations, our families, our communities. And then all of this is framed in a violet-light joy field that is beautiful and bright and brings us heaven's bounties. So get engaged in holy projects. Work with your brothers and sisters, collaborate and cooperate—all of this is part of the seventh era and the seventh pillar.

The eighth and final pillar deals with meditation, silence, integrating who we are as God beings through various Buddhic practices in which we enter into beingness, the eternal Now through silence, stillness and meditation. This is the pillar where we fully integrate with God. For those who desire an accelerated life, when you master meditation and stillness in the Great Silence, you really enter into the full mastery of Self. Some don't really master this in an entire life. They live in the Western world and they're busy, busy, busy—they are busybodies and busy bees. But it's better to be in beingness and silence at a certain stage in your life, where you have become wise, passed your initiations, gone through these other seven pillars, and now it's a time to go within and to fully live in the integrative field of Buddhic beingness.

Many of us in The Hearts Center are focusing more on meditation and silence and stillness. And we draw to our movement those who are also affinitized to these practices, because we are moving more toward this than just the dynamic decrees or only doing our mission. Later in life, we really have to assess where we are. We have to be in a constant state of inner dialogue with God, communion with God, because we are preparing for our ascension.

So use your time wisely in considering how the divine world can use you as a spiritual devotee, as an initiate to fulfill heaven's purpose on Earth. And you do this through setting aside time to simply be still, to reflect, to commemorate God within you, to contemplate the divine light in all of its essences within the world and your life, your family, your community.

So these eight pillars are important for us to consider because they bring the richness of Spirit into play within our lives. They're all complementary, and you can be doing all of them in one given day in some way. Not that you have to do all of them in one day, but throughout your life you are engaged in actively balancing things through an understanding of these eight pillars, how essential all of them are to the path. And if you focus too much on only one pillar, you can get a little unbalanced. And therefore the universe will conspire to bring you into balance by working through illness or situations or karma to dramatize how important it is to enter into this balanced state of being.

There are phases in our lives when we are more engaged in some of these than others. For instance, young children are not involved in the divine mission, divine plan, at an early age. They have to be educated first; they have to learn certain things, learn skill sets. And then eventually, in their adulthood, they can start working on their divine plan more, become a volunteer, learn alchemy, learn how to meditate. Although, even young children can learn some of these things and engage in some of these pillars from infancy if they're taught by wise parents, so that as they move through life they are naturally fulfilling the requirements of all these pillars to be God-taught, to be God Self-realized.

Now, I believe that these probably relate to the Eightfold Path of the Buddha, who spoke of right livelihood, right thought and right practices, et cetera. And someone could, if they desire, see how these relate to those eight points of the Eightfold Path. And if you choose to do that, fine. This is just another way of expressing it in a way that some—especially those of us in the Western world—look at life and can relate to the various spiritual practices and the very practical things that we do in our lives to allow God to live, move and have his/her being through us.

I think it's important to consider this teaching from El Morya so that we are honest with ourselves about where we stand, where we are on the path. And if we find one area in our lives that we're really, really good at, great; we can help others in that area. Yet maybe there's another that we have not quite self-mastered, and then we can focus a little bit more there and discern how the Holy Spirit can work through us in a greater way when we do have that balance—let's say, for instance, fasting. I was really good at it as a youth. It's harder now later in life, but when you get a momentum on it, it's not that hard. It's just a matter of discipline. And then there's volunteerism. Right now I don't go out and volunteer with other agencies because I give my all through this activity, almost 24/7. So I am ministering through the sixth ray in what I do. Yet I am not necessarily going out to volunteer with another organization, although I could if I desired, a couple of hours a week or a couple of hours a month.

I think ministering to people is very important. You always feel so happy when you've given selflessly to another without the world knowing about it. You just do that thing that you know will benefit life, and heaven rewards you instantly through various graces that come to you because you have selflessly given. You've been involved in people's lives by helping them in some way, and it's just so fulfilling. That's more fulfilling than fame and fortune by being a star or being out there where everyone sees you doing it.

So thank you, El Morya, for this teaching. I think it's important for us to teach it to our children, to reflect on it. And I see eventually the essence of this made into a little chart. Nancy did a wonderful job on the five crystal rays and documenting that from the recent teaching and from a test we had for the staff. And so I see this all actually being kind of crystallized into something that we can have in our decree books, three hole-punched to the size of our prayer sheets, so we can reflect on it. It may take both sides to really get it down to having all the teaching in there. But I think even on one side it could have the basic eight pillars and what they are. So I guess that's kind of like a requested assignment, and we have a few months to fulfill it. I'm not going to say it has to be done immediately.
