On Being Direct in Our Approach to God, Ourselves and Others
Tonight the Divine Director would like me to speak to all lightbearers around the world with a very direct message. He says to be direct in your approach to God.
Many people seek divine direction to know their purpose, their divine plan. Well, we can discern this when we are direct in our approach to God. And how do we do that? We go straight to the Source. We don't always have to have an intermediary to tell us what we should be doing, how we should do it or why. We can go directly to God, and the Divine Director will help us to be very direct.
He says to be intrepid, courageous and daring. We have heard the ascended masters' adage in the past, the maxim “To know, to dare, to do and to be silent.” To be intrepid means to be daring, to be dauntless, to be decisive in our approach. And when we do this, all of heaven supports our resolve to be godly.
The Divine Director says to be constant, intelligent and obedient. We all have had experiences in our lives when we heard the inner voice speak to us with a warning or a form of guidance before we were ready to take some action, and then we didn't listen and obey immediately. And then later we realized that we could have avoided a problem, an issue, a major situation, maybe even an accident or injury to ourselves, if we had been obedient.
If we are direct in our approach to God; if we go straight to the Source; if we are intrepid, courageous, daring and dauntless and are obedient through our diligence and constancy, we can avoid many problems, issues, entanglements and relationships or situations that bring us down or bring our energies down.
The Divine Director says to be fruitful and to multiply your gifts through divine alchemy—the science of divine love practically applied, as Saint Germain has defined it in the advanced alchemy book. The Bible tells us in Genesis that God said to be fruitful and multiply. This fruitfulness and multiplication that God is directing us to do and to be relates to all of our affairs: to be fruitful in what we yield or co-create and what we give to others, to life; to be generous with our givingness to the universe, to God, to others and to ourselves.
We can be generous in a loving, kind way to ourselves by how we treat ourselves through our own consciousness—what moves through our mind, what we muse upon throughout the day, how we approach ourselves and look at ourselves. If we are true to ourselves and are intrepid and constant, then we treat ourselves well: we eat appropriately; we dine with love for God and appreciation to the elements and the elementals and the hands that help feed or serve us. We are reverent toward all beings in our approach, how we comport ourselves, how we communicate.
To be direct means to be forthright, true. And in this very direct approach, we aren't wishy-washy; we don't take a lot of byroads upon our path. We follow the straight-and-narrow spiritual path. This doesn't mean that we can't be creative and let the Holy Spirit guide us in very creative ways. We can. And yet within that creativity, there is still the heart-set, the mind-set to be direct in all that we do.
The Divine Director says to be direct in our approach with ourselves. Be true to our purpose, follow our own inner guide, be honest, walk our talk, live the teachings each day, each hour. If we say one thing and then we do something else in contradiction to what we have spoken, we are hypocrites—and let us not be spiritual hypocrites. If we say one thing, we should be true to that word and follow that word that we've spoken, because the words are creative energy, engrams that go into the universe. And if we do not follow what we speak, then those words will return to us to judge our own actions. Our own words will judge our actions, according to whether we either walk our talk or not.
Be consistent. Once we've made up our mind, we follow our decision all the way through. And if we find that we could have made a better choice, we learn our lesson. We don't rue our decision or feel bad about it for a long period of time. We may realize that there was an error, and yet we get up, we dust ourselves off from the error and we move on. It is better to make a decision, once we have communed with God and our Source, and follow the inner guidance and stick with it all the way through than to keep changing directions left and right, right and left, over and over. Because then we will not have a polestar of being before us to guide us—the North Star that will light our way.
The Divine Director says to be fully present and to give our Higher Self dominion over our life and over our lesser self. He encourages us to allow the Spirit to be in charge of our matter universe. When the Spirit, the light of God, is in charge, nothing can forestall the divine will manifesting in our lives, because the Spirit is more powerful than the flesh. The Spirit is more dynamic and energetic than any human creation.
When we abide in our true spiritual, integrated self, in our creative self, the energy of Spirit weighs upon and through and within us for the greatest good and harmony of all life. And the Spirit, present within us and moving through us in a co-creative way, empowers us to be God's sons and daughters in a very direct, appropriate and powerful matrix.
The Divine Director says to be direct in our approach with others. Be a conscious and loving listener. Truly hear what others are saying, both with their words and with their body language, and even what is not being said, because sometimes people would prefer not to say something and yet they feel it. When we are in our intuitive self, we can feel the truth behind the words of what others are sharing, or we may not feel the truth.
The Divine Director says to be a conscious and kind speaker: use conscious language and appropriate and compassionate communication techniques. Be forgiving of others, because just as we view and forgive others, so God views us and forgives us. As we love others, that love returns to abide within us, to grace our lives. As we are conscious every day and throughout our day, the consciousness of God surrounds us; the awareness of heaven is provided for us. The more we attempt to be conscious, true, understanding and to live in integrity, the more that all these virtues of God and the dynamics that empower them play out in our lives. To be conscious of what God's virtues are, to study the virtues, to attempt to use them and become them in our lives, to be ennobled by them is a great source of inspiration, which provides us with wisdom and all the tools and resources we require in our work, in our service, in our lives to be true disciples.
The Divine Director says to be a conscious and noble worker. Work is the byword of the initiate and the disciple. If we are truly involved in God's affairs and the kingdom of God being birthed upon Earth each day in some way, then that work will return to serve us when we require assistance, help of any kind—either from others or from the universe, the angels, the great cosmic masters and divine beings.
The more we work in harmony with others in a team spirit, in a communal effort, the more God's teams—the angels—provide us with the impetus for our Self-realization and our victory; the more the community of the Holy Spirit in heaven descends to embody through our community and pour forth love unto each member of that community—whether it be in Chile, Barcelona, Sweden, Norway, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, the United States of America, Australia or anywhere.
So to be a conscious and noble worker, we tap into the power of the Holy Spirit to synchronistically and energetically work with community, teams and groups as one holy body of God. When we work with others rather than against others and attempt to provide the resources that we have at our disposal in a great way and utilize the resources of others in teamwork, we tap into the divine resources of the great teamwork of heaven, which involves the Elohim, the ascended masters, the angels and the precious elementals, because all of these kingdoms are great teams.
You may have heard of the Teams of Conquerors. These are armies of the Lord, such as those that Archangel Michael leads in heaven. The Teams of Conquerors include Ray O' Light, who wields the fearlessness flame; and the Angel of Deliverance, whom we heard from this past year and who is a great friend of Archangel Michael. Sometimes Michael has been called the Angel of Deliverance, and he is often an angel of deliverance. We can invoke these great Teams of Conquerors any time we feel less-than or when something is stifling our creativity. And they will come to our aid and support us and provide the impetus for our victory. Mighty Victory is one of the key angels that leads a number of these Teams of Conquerors.
The Divine Director says to be a conscious and supportive disciple. There are those who support the messenger and the ascended masters through their love, their prayers, their attitude and their energetic spirit. And then there are those who question, who deride, who pick apart, who criticize in secret, based on their perception of the human failings or faculties of a messenger.
So you can analyze whether you are a supportive disciple of both the voice of the masters through this dispensation and through previous messengers, and of the masters themselves directly, which is even more important. Because if you are supportive of the Divine Director, El Morya, Saint Germain, Mother Mary, Kuan Yin, Jesus and the various masters that you love, then you will honor the Presence of that master, the work of that master, the message of that master, and the sacred dharma of the many, many people through whom that master has invested his energy in the Earth.
In your meditation and communion with that master, you would tap into the divine plan of that master, which may include the work of many, many disciples. So if you are a conscious and supportive disciple, then your discipleship rises every time you invest your heart's energy and fire in a prayer service; in a Meru University course; in work in your community; in collaboration with heartfriends to put on an event or serve at a booth at a New Age fair; in working on the translation of a book or creating a new form of artistry; or in painting or cleaning your center. There is much work that has to be done, and you can choose to be invested in that work and to be a conscious and supportive disciple any time by offering your energies, your love and your positive attitude to the equation.
Now, this discipleship is something that is an inner thing. And ultimately, you and you alone, with God, know what level of inner commitment, communication, obedience and discipleship you have in this relationship of the student with the teacher, the disciple with the guru, the initiate with the master.
You can rise in vibration any time through your attentiveness to the path by being there for God in a very direct way and by being decisive and obedient in all things. I'm going to recapitulate some of these concepts again.
· The Divine Director's primary message for tonight is for us to be direct in our approach to God.
· Go straight to the Source.
· Be intrepid, courageous, daring and dauntless.
· Be constant, diligent and obedient.
· Be fruitful and multiply your gifts through alchemy.
· Be direct in your approach with yourself.
· Be true to your purpose.
· Follow your own inner guidance and your conscience.
· Be honest.
· Walk your talk.
· Live the teachings each day, each hour.
· Be consistent. Once you've made up your mind on a particular matter, follow that decision all the way through to its conclusion, even if you find later that you've made a mistake or could have made a better decision. You learn in this. And, of course, the universe is very forgiving, and God is more concerned about you being creative and being forthright than always being correct.
· Be fully present and give your Higher Self dominion over your life. The Spirit is in charge of our matter universe.
· Be direct in your approach with others.
· Be a conscious and loving listener.
· Be a conscious and kind speaker.
· Be a conscious and noble worker.
· Be a conscious and supportive disciple. And I would add now, at his direction, to be supportive, loving, kind and noble towards elemental life, the nature kingdom, all nature spirits and, of course, all sentient beings. Our direct approach with others also includes all forms of life, both human and elemental—even the mineral kingdom, the plant kingdom, the angelic kingdom, the Elohim and all beings of light.
This directness is what a disciple can choose to be invested in. By being direct, we live in integrity; we walk the path of both the Christ, the Buddha and the Divine Mother. When we are direct, we hold our head erect. We move forward clearly to realize our goal, to be victorious in all things. By being direct with ourselves, with others and with God, the Divine Director will direct us. So if we are first direct in our approach to God, ourselves and others, we magnetize the divine direction of the Divine Director.
So if you require some form of guidance or divine direction, ask yourself: “Am I being direct with myself, others and God? Am I being true and honest with myself, others and God? Am I walking my talk with myself, others and God?” If you can truly answer yes to these, then you can expect heaven's intercession, heaven's guidance, heaven's approval of your efforts. And whether you hear the voice of God directly in a thunderous way or whether you hear it in the still small voice within your heart, you will be directed by the Divine. And the more you live in integrity and are direct in your approach to God, the easier it will be for you to hear the voice of God within your heart.
You will know instantaneously the highest path to walk, the safest and surest way to tread. How do I know this? Because for forty years I have attempted to walk the path in honesty and integrity with God, with the ascended masters. And I have failed a number of times in being direct and honest with myself, others and God. I have learned these lessons, and I have attempted to return to the state of integrity, to live in truth, to walk my talk and to be honest.
Even recently I had a situation that occurred where I did not completely keep my word to someone. I was caught off guard, and a situation occurred where it was brought to my attention. And then I had to give myself a penance for not being completely true to my word and fulfilling exactly what I said that I would do.
So if this happens with me, I know it happens with some of us—although I know many of you live in complete, 100 percent integrity of your God Self as much as you possibly, humanly can. Yet we all at times fall, fail or come short of the mark. And that's when we have to be submissive to the divine will, realize that we can do better, make amends and atone for our errors. And even the best disciples can be humble about this. And through our humility, we can return to that state of divine agility, which comes when we are in alignment with the Holy Spirit and when we are true to our word and to our True Self.
The Divine Director works behind the scenes with every initiate who is true to himself or herself. And whether or not you realize that the Divine Director has been there for you, I can assure you that he has, because he is involved, as the Manu of the Seventh Root Race, with the affairs of mankind at this time in our history, being invested in Saint Germain's great work, with Portia, in the transition to the Age of Aquarius. He guides, guards and directs much of what is transpiring in terms of the spiritual uplift of humanity, and he provides many, many resources for us.
Every time you give the prayer “Raise the Earth in Sacred Fire,” he is there working spiritually for you and for the Earth. And he works very decisively for the Earth every time we give him the authority to act in our affairs and in the affairs of mankind. So the more you call to him, pray to him, meditate with him and give him permission to act, the more you will see the hand of God manifesting in nature, in our world, in our economy, in our governments and throughout the world to raise mankind in that light that always prevails.
God bless you. Thank you, all who have listened to this discourse tonight. And I personally send my love, my spiritual affection for each of you in Santiago, Chile, and for all those who are listening tonight and who will listen or watch this broadcast at a later time. May the hand of God guide you and direct your affairs in all things, and may the living God be present in your life to lead you to your ultimate victory in the ascension. God bless you and good night.
