33-Day Ascended Master Wisdom Series
Good morning, everyone. God bless you on this thirtieth day of December, 2016, the penultimate day of the year. This is the final day of the thirty-three-day novena of maxims from thirty-three different ascended masters. And I am grateful that they have fulfilled this beautiful alchemy through me and through all of us, because you have been a part of it. So here we go. Today's maxims are from Alpha.
1. Commence a new cycle of oneness in your life within the center of God-love.
2. As you follow your ideal to the zenith of being, I am there for every step.
3. Allow the precious oils of light and the calm colors of compassion to soothe your soul now.
4. Father light and mother love within yourself and within every breath.
5. The sacred portents of your illumined Selfhood are evident every moment.
6. Divine oneness is your natural state of being. Dive into it with surrendered grace.
7. Qualifying energy with loving purity will qualify you for Love's return unto you.
8. Highlight the virtuous graces you desire to be, and I AM their appearance within you now.
9. I AM perfect spherical awareness. I AM diversity in unity. I AM oneness in all expressions.

19. The triumph of light will result in a brighter universe for all.
20. The complexities of life, light and love may be transmuted into the Singularity of beingness.

22. Being heart-centered is the surest means of retaining and expanding the light of your aura.
23. The effulgence of the New World is manifesting now in every sphere of awareness of those who love God with their entire being.
24. Thank you for meditating on these maxims of light. Blessed be your Spirit in this light!
After all of these were completed, I went to the dictionary to look up the word maxim, even though I kind of knew what it meant. I'd like to read a few different dictionaries' definitions:
From Oxforddictionaries.com: “A short pithy statement expressing a general truth or rule of conduct: ‘the maxim that actions speak louder than words.'” Some synonyms are “saying, adage, aphorism, proverb, motto, axiom, dictum.”
If you remember, the original word we used was dictates, though I think dictum would have been better. Yet I like maxim the best.
From the online Merriam-Webster dictionary: “A general truth, fundamental principle or rule of conduct.” And a second definition: “A proverbial saying.”
From dictionary.com: “an expression of a general truth or principle, especially an aphoristic or sententious one.” They give the example “The maxims of La Rochefoucauld.” Forgive me for butchering that French name, La Rochefoucauld. Those of you who know French history, world history may pronounce that better.
Vocabulary.com says: “A maxim is a succinct formulation of a principle, rule or basic truth about life. Usually clever, maxims are like great sayings everybody knows. Ben Franklin is the author of many, including ‘Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.'” I think the same is true for women. “A maxim sums up a fundamental principle or truth about something in a way that captures the imagination and gets repeated. Diana Vreeland, the legendary editor of Vogue magazine once said, ‘Pink is the navy blue of India.' May not be true, but it was such a great line that it has become a maxim of fashion and even of India. An overused maxim of real estate is ‘Location, location, location.' Confucius was spewing maxims long before Vogue hit the magazine stands: ‘He who learns but does not think is lost.'”
Another final definition I found is “A saying that is widely accepted on its own merits.”
I expect that in the future, when the ascended masters are a household name and more of their beautiful teachings through this and other dispensations are commonly known in the world, a number of the maxims from this series will be in the general parlance and will be quoted in books and by spiritual people and teachers, who will use them to clarify issues and to bring light upon various subjects.
The wide range of topics that the masters spoke on in these maxims is very amazing to me. To refresh our memory, I'll review who the thirty-three masters are.
As you remember, we first went around the cosmic clock and we did the masters who sponsored the 12/6, 3/ 9, 1/7, 4/10, 2/8 and 5/11 lines of the cosmic clock, as taught by beloved Mother Mary through Elizabeth Clare Prophet.
So we started with the Divine Director on November 28, and then Serapis Bey and Helios and Vesta. Then on December 1, there was Mighty Victory, Saint Germain, the Goddess of Liberty, Godfre, Cyclopea, Jesus, Lanto, El Morya and Lord Maitreya. They were the first twelve. Then we had Kuthumi, Lanello, Djwal Kul, Fortuna, Kuan Yin, Virgo, Grace, Hilarion, Ray-O-Light, K-17, and Portia, the Goddess of Justice. Finally, the last ten were Laugh-a-Lot, John the Beloved, Lady Kristine, Clare de Lis, Thor (on Christmas Day), Rose of Light, Goddess of Purity, Queen of Light, Goddess of Light and, finally, beloved Alpha.
Now, the masters through our dispensation of The Hearts Center have released a number of very pithy aphorisms. We had El Morya's Quips, which were published in the book Now, Zen and Always. We have had many other releases, including Kuan Yin's thirty-three-day spiral of her Missives of Mercy and also Lanello's wonderful releases. Clare de Lis released a thirty-three-day series. Hers were full HeartStreams, which we hope to publish this coming year as a part of a major book that we desire to put in print. We had Manjushri's beautiful Mindfulness Moments and Lord Maitreya's wonderful statements. We had Jesus's Jewels of Joy early on in our movement. We had a whole series from Lady Kristine on grace—Lady Kristine's Chrisms—which were absolutely beautiful. We had Hilarion's Truffles of Truth, which were awesome. And there have been a few others, including Kuthumi's series, which was also very, very beautiful.
Many masters have come and released these. We hope to have a number of books that are meditative, with about six statements on a page, so that people can read them, focus on them and meditate on them. The one that just got released, the 33-Day Ascended Master Wisdom Series of Maxims, is one that we hope to publish also.
So this brings us to the end of this year, 2016. Tomorrow we have a service in Livingston, during which Gautama Buddha will deliver his year-end HeartStream and give the thoughtform for the coming year, 2017. I'm looking forward to that and being with you from 10 am to noon Mountain Time, or maybe a little after noon, with Boyd and Dean and company here. It should be a mighty release of light.
I'd like to just briefly thank the ascended masters and say that it is your wisdom teaching that flows through us—through me and through our dispensation, through all of us—your amazing words that are a part of this logoic divine logic of the Christos, which is the WORD, the WORD of God as the second person of the Trinity. These sacred words are offered to humanity to enlighten us, to edify us, to bring us deeper understanding, inner knowledge, to move us into that state where we are enlightened and enlivened in order that we may blossom into our full potential as living Christs, living Buddhas, living Krishnas, living Divine Mothers while yet walking and talking upon Earth.
When we partake of the Word, when we study sacred scriptures, the everlasting gospel—of which all of our teachings are a part, along with all of Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov's teachings, much of the teachings of Elizabeth and Mark Prophet, and the teachings of other dispensations—we have the opportunity to go into the center of our being, to commune with our Presence, our Higher Self, and with the overshining radiance and presence of the ascended masters and tune into that Word so that we align ourselves with it and become it.
It's one thing to listen, listen, listen and sit at the feet of a guru, a teacher, an avatar. It's a whole other thing to assimilate the teaching by becoming it through practical application, whereby our knowledge becomes wisdom, whereby understanding becomes the proof of beingness as we incorporate those principles, concepts, values and understandings into our soul by applying them in everyday situations. We learn the lessons of the teaching, gain mastery over our lesser self, allow our Divine Presence to bloom and blossom in our lives and share our gifts and talents by giving light to the world and effusing, emitting and emanating that radiance as a blessing to all life.
Our purpose in this movement is to provide an impetus for and a vehicle for every soul to be fully reconnected, or simply connected, to their Divine Self through the legacy and the light of the ascended masters, who release these teachings so that each soul can be Self-realized, liberated, eternally free in God, united with God. Every true religion should have the same basic understanding and tenets of leading you—the soul—back to God. And whatever prophet, master, avatar or divine teacher founded that religion should be an example, a spiritual goad to lead you, to usher you to that state of your own Self-enlightened awareness. A true master does not try to hitch you to his or her star permanently; he or she is there to temporarily emanate that light and love so that you can become that light yourself.
The perversion of this understanding is the concept of vicarious atonement, which says that Christ did it for everyone, and therefore all you have to do is believe on him and you're saved. It's important to believe on the Christ, of course. To accept Jesus as an example of the living Christ is important, yet we don't stop there. We go deeper. We rely on Jesus up to a point, and then we move to the point where we incorporate everything that he said; we inscribe it and etch it deep within our being so that it becomes a living reality for us. We are brothers of Jesus and we are on par with that Christ awareness because we have assimilated it. This is what I think most of us in this movement understood, even as children. We had it locked in our hearts and our souls at a young age. For some of you it took a little longer, yet you still had it there deep inside. And you know now that it is your responsibility, your accountability, because you have these higher teachings, to go all the way on the path of light and to evolve to that point of allowing God and your Divine Presence to shine forth through you 24/7 and literally be that Sun-fire radiance of your Presence.
Each one of these maxims, these aphorisms, these axioms, is a nugget of light, a pearl of wisdom to inspire us and to spark us to consider something deeper from a moment in timelessness so that we ingest it and so that it works as a seed ideation of light to alchemically unearth within us this hidden resource of our divine light, which we've kind of glossed over or at times snuffed out by unconsciousness.
When you read or listen to these again and study them, meditate upon them, absorb them and assimilate them, let them work on you throughout your day. And you may remember a few of them here and there and allow them to simply resonate within the inner sanctuary of your heart. I know that you will find them to be a resource for you to be joyful, to be happy, to be uplifted, to be in the light and always in the Spirit of God.
So thank you, ascended masters. What I just shared can hopefully be kind of like an introduction to the book when it's transcribed. That was part of the purpose for releasing this today.
Thank you, Helen and Estelle Marie, for being there in Detroit. I love you and I support you. Thank you for all of your sacrifice and your givingness. Have a wonderful day, everyone, and we'll see you tomorrow. Bye-bye.
