Your Buddha Nature:
A Chart of Divine Knowing
 

Buddha Nature Image

Identity Blueprint: The Real You     
Your Buddha nature is the blueprint of your true identity. The upper figure in the chart is your Divine Presence or Solar Presence¹, known as the I AM THAT I AM. Surrounding it is your causal body—glorious rainbow-colored spheres composed of the original gift of light energy to your soul. Each vibratory color represents a specific virtue which you have developed through lifetimes by your positive thoughts, words and actions.
 
The middle figure in the chart is the mediator, the teacher, the Higher Self,2 the one who communicates the holiness and love-wisdom of God to your soul, exemplified in great masters such as Gautama Buddha, Kuan Yin, Confucius, Krishna and Jesus.
         
The lower figure represents you as an evolving soul, bathed in violet light. For many the violet light may be a new concept. It is an exciting one. The violet light is a facet of the Holy Spirit that radiates forgiveness into your being, accelerating your transformation toward wholeness.
 
Silver Cord and Tube of Light
The slender white beam of light known as the crystal or silver cord³ descends from your Divine Presence through the mediator and is anchored in the threefold flame4 within your heart. This light energy cord is your connection to your Divine Source. 
 
The cylinder of shimmering pure radiance descending from your Presence and surrounding the lower figures is called the crystal-diamond tube of light5 which you can invoke daily for your protection and empowerment by giving the following prayer:
 
  Beloved I AM Love divine,
Blaze your light, around me shine.
Cosmic secret rays of fire,
Pulsing, flowing, you inspire.
Violet joy now smile through me,
Raise me up and set me free.
Singing, spinning, burning bright,
Grace me in your mercy light.
 
 
 
1.“Solar Presence” is a new term, introduced by the ascended masters through The Hearts Center dispensation, to describe that part of our being that is God, depicted as the upper figure in “Your Buddha Nature Chart.” The Solar Presence is also called the I AM Presence, the Divine Presence, the God Presence. It is the individualization of the One, our true divine identity. In the wording “Solar Presence” we see the image of our total being as a radiating sun center which continually emanates divine love and every virtue to all life.
 
2. The Higher Self is that part of us that is God—omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent awareness that is our true nature and destiny. The ascended masters define “Higher Self” as the I AM Presence (upper figure of Buddha Nature Chart), and the Christ/Buddha Self (middle figure) is also given this name.Higher Self” is a term associated with several religious philosophies and spiritual teachings. Higher Mind, God Presence, Christ Presence, Higher Consciousness, Super Consciousness, Christ Consciousness, Buddhic Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness and God Consciousness are also synonymous terms. Recently, the term “Being” has been used by the ascended masters to label a state of presence, the ability to live only attending to the moment. This ability to be fully present allows our Higher Self to act through us and direct our ways.
 
3. The crystal or silver cord is the soul’s “lifeline” to the Creator in the same way our umbilical cord is our "lifeline" to our mother during the birth process. The stream of life-giving spiritual energy descends through this cord into our bodies, animating them by the power of the Holy Spirit. Clairvoyants see this cord. And some who have known near-death experiences remember being drawn back into their bodies by this slender thread of light or descending through it for the return. 

4. The threefoldflame is nothing less than God, blazing within our physical form, individualized in each person. Called the “threefold flame” by the ascended masters, it can only be seen at higher frequencies. It is placed in our hearts at birth and is withdrawn at transition. “Threefold” means that not one but three identifiable plumes—blue, yellow, pink—as seen in the heart of the lower figure of The Chart of Your Buddha Nature rise from the same source—a tiny sphere of white Mother light energy. The blue plume embodies the desire of the soul to do the will of God. It is the flame of protection, perfection and divine direction. The yellow plume represents the right use of knowledge of all kinds, a wisdom and discrimination based on the standards and principles of truth. The pink plume represents love—adoration, devotion, compassion, the very nature of God. The ideal is that these plumes are balanced within us so that power is tempered with love and love is saturated with wisdom. Synonymous terms for the threefold flame are "God-flame" and "divine spark."

 5. The crystal-diamond tube of light is our heavenly cylinder of protection. It descends from our Solar Presence upon invocation and remains in tact as long as we maintain our harmony, centeredness and belief in its reality. The Ascended Lady Master Magda explained that the atmosphere within this tube is a living, liquid-crystal diamond substance. Her mantra, 9.009 in our Prayers, Decrees and Mantras book, reminds us to affirm that this is truly where we reside at all times as we walk the Earth.
