Kuan Yin's Maxims
Today is the exact middle day of the release of this thirty-three-day vigil of maxims. So guess who's coming today? Who we just sang to—Kuan Yin. So here are her twenty-four Maxims.
1. Cross the threshold of Mercy's gate to experience my garden of gratitude and grace.
2. I have studied the inflections within Omega's voice to discern how cosmic mercy is spoken, and I have observed her garments to discover how it is woven.
3. Meditate on Mercy's intelligence and her ability to discern the best time and place to appear.
4. God anoints those who weave mercy within their daily work, paint mercy across the fabric of their minds and etch mercy upon the retina of their insights.
5. The merciless are the godless for a season only. I revel in saving even these.
6. Giving my rosary replenishes your spiritual reserves to ever maintain Buddhic beingness.
7. We appreciate the sylphs' and salamanders' colorful renditions of mercy-light in the skies at dusk.
8. Long ago I discerned the innate power of mercy to transmute the darkest of souls and deeds.
9. The mercy flame is a cool and gentle flame, yet just as dynamic in its lasting effects as blue lightning.
10. Kuthumi's students study Mercy's wisdom to help understand and resolve the deepest psychological issues.
11. Mercy loves the gentle approach and the kind advance.
12. Often, being merciful is simply being responsive, listening and desiring to understand and affirm.
13. Nada, Portia, Athena and Liberty often corroborate my analyses and approve my recommendations before I take them to the entire Karmic Board.
14. The alliance of all bodhisattvas wields great authority in heaven in the dynamics of raising and saving sentient beings.
15. Mercy shared is loving-kindness fulfilled.
16. The merciful have learned the power of the humble way and the inherent strength in the gentle and compassionate heart.
17. We often overlook ignorance and inconsistency, yet insincerity and dishonesty must be corrected.
18. Every true religion incorporates mercy and kindness in its tenets and practices.
19. Mercy's field is ever expanding due to the decadence of this time and the demands of the hour.
20. Reword your self-language to be merciful to your own soul and kind to God's Spirit within.
21. The mercy fountains in my retreat are a source of great comfort to the souls of weary initiates who pray and serve without ceasing.
22. Mercy transcends time and space because the power of love's effects is boundless.
23. Have you discerned why five lady masters serve on the Karmic Board?
24. I reinvest Mercy's savings in seventh-ray servitors who are in training to be savants and saviors.
Those are the twenty-four maxims from Kuan Yin—very beautiful. Thank you, beloved Kuan Yin. I'd just like to share a little more of my insights on some of these.
I really appreciated number five: “The merciless are the godless for a season only. I revel in saving even these.” When we encounter someone that we consider to be merciless or when we observe them doing their thing through the media or in the world, remember this is not their true Self and that they are being godless for a season. How long that season is, only God knows and that soul knows. Yet even Kuan Yin attempts to save these.
So lest we continue to refer to everyone we may disagree with as godless ones or fallen ones, I don't think that's the way Kuan Yin refers to them. She refers to them as those yet to be saved, yet to be mercified and blessed by Mercy's flame. This takes an amazing amount of patience, understanding of human nature and of the nature of the lower self and of evil. And if Kuan Yin can do this, we can do this.
As I shared a while back, imagine you are the soul of a person that you consider to be evil. Would you potentially come out of your negative cocoon as a result of receiving beautiful divine thoughts of people who are attempting to help you? Or would you come out of that cocoon if people are sending you a lot of negative energy because they disagree with what you're doing? I think we all know the answer.
So even though there are people we may perceive as being very evil, godless in their approach to life and what they do, it doesn't really help them to make amends and atone for their sins if we, as initiates, send negative energy or bad thoughts toward them. It's something for us to consider. We can be, in a very mindful way, more like Kuan Yin and the bodhisattvas. If we've taken a bodhisattva vow, we have to have a different type of approach, which is very understanding and loving. It doesn't mean that we're a doormat or that we allow others to be taken advantage of. No. It means that we are very strong in our commitment to mercy. It means that we do not fall into the trap of doing what others do—standing in judgment, engaging in human analysis of everything, and operating from the lesser self's carnal mind.
I love number twelve: “Often, being merciful is simply being responsive, listening and desiring to understand and affirm.” How many times have people told us that they felt better after talking with us and we really didn't say much? We just listened, were responsive and tried to smile and kind of put up with all the stuff that they were talking about—their past, their problems, their issues, their physical conditions. If we maintain the Christ and the Buddhic consciousness, we're not lowering ourselves into sympathy, which would keep them in that state. We are maintaining a very strong energy field of compassion and empathy. That is the Christ consciousness rather than the human consciousness, and that itself emanates light to help them.
I love number eleven: “Mercy loves the gentle approach and the kind advance.” The kind advance—I was thinking what this kind advance is. I think it's like an approach. When you advance toward someone or something, you're moving on. And how often have we seen people who, in a very boorish way, just move forward without the grace of mercy in their aura? And so we appreciate when people come up to us gently, without being intense and trying to push their agenda on us. If we appreciate that in others, we can do the same thing. We just have to be very cautious and very caring in the way that we comport ourselves, the way that we come across.
I love fourteen: “The alliance of all bodhisattvas wields great authority in heaven.” This is the first time I've heard this word alliance being used to describe the bodhisattva brother/sisterhood in heaven. It is an alliance, and that alliance has great authority because the collective vows and the energy of God-good within the causal bodies of all bodhisattvas have a dynamism and a power to save sentient beings that is amazing.
So realize that if you give Kuan Yin's Rosary of Mercy, as we did today when we gave the fifty-eight verses within that, what we call the Bodhisattva Vision—which contains within it the bodhisattva path—we tap into this cosmic alliance of all these Buddhas and bodhisattvas of heaven. We collectively wield that power through the collective God-consciousness, Solar awareness, Buddhic presence and Atmic presence of all these beings. It's not us, of course. We tap into it and then we activate the engrams of light that they emanate and send forth to do the perfect work on the Earth. It's a very powerful matrix.
Number seventeen is very understanding: “We often overlook ignorance and inconsistency….” People generally, and even we, are ignorant about certain things. And we're not always consistent with what we have vowed or what we know we can do. Heaven overlooks that often, “yet insincerity and dishonesty must be corrected.” We can't be insincere if we're really on the path. We have to do things with the right motive and we have to be honest with ourselves and others. Otherwise people will kind of shine us off and say, “Well, I don't believe you. You've said this and you've done that, so I can't trust you.” Heaven says the same thing. If you desire to be a chela or a disciple or an initiate, you have to be honest with them. So when we write our letters and give our vows or make our vows to the Karmic Board, remember that and try to follow what you said you would do.
Number nineteen is very interesting: “Mercy's field is ever expanding due to the decadence of this time and the demands of the hour.” You can imagine that Kuan Yin and the bodhisattvas are very busy. Their field, the generation of their light, has to expand to meet all these demands of what is transpiring. And the laborers are few, but the harvest is rich.1 We wish to have a rich harvest of light, and yet we require the laborers to gather and reap.
“Reword your self-language to be merciful to your own soul.” We criticize ourselves at times and we demean ourselves. Why? Maybe we're trying to be humble before others by being self-effacing. And yet is that really the best thing? I think it's better to just be silent and watch our inner language, our self-language so that we don't demean God's Spirit within us. If God placed his immortal Spirit, her divine spark in us, we have to be aware of that and honor what God has embedded inside of us so we don't deprecate ourselves. It's a subtle thing, and yet it's very important.
I love twenty-one. I think we'll close with this. “The mercy fountains in my retreat are a source of great comfort to the souls of weary initiates who pray and serve without ceasing.” We can ask to be bathed in these mercy fountains on the inner, in meditation, when we sleep at night. We can take a moment to close our eyes and imagine being there and then experience what these mercy fountains bode in terms of the energy that they are constantly bubbling out into the ethers. And then we can breathe them in, drink them in, bathe in them, experience them and be refreshed and then get back to our work. It just takes a few moments of imagination to go there. You can ask to go there in your spirit, receive that nurturing and that rejuvenation and then get back to the spiritual grind, so to speak.
Thank you, everyone, for your attention. Thank you, Kuan Yin, for being at the very nexus of this thirty-three-day vigil and release. And we look forward to what is coming for the second half of this release.
