The Ascended Masters are Individuals who were once embodied on Earth and learned the lessons of Life in Their embodiments. They transcended human limitations and Ascended into Divine Freedom. They gained Mastery over the limitations of the matter planes, * balanced at least 51% of negative karma, and fulfilled Their Dharma (Divine Plan). An Ascended Being has become God-like and a Source of unconditional Love to all Life, and through the Ascension has united with His or Her Own God Self, the "I AM" Presence. Ascended Masters serve as the Teachers of mankind from the Realms of Spirit. The Divine Plan is for all people to eventually attain the Ascension and move forward in Spiritual Evolution beyond this planet. 6
Ascended Masters are enlightened Spiritual Beings who lived on Earth, faced the same challenges we face today and reunited with God. Today They serve as the Teachers of mankind from the Realms of Spirit. They guide, protect, inspire and heal mankind. They are Teachers in the truest sense of the word. They can help us grow in any area of our lives and achieve the real purpose of life: to become One with God in the Ascension.
Through the putting on of that Mind which was in Christ Jesus, Ascended Masters have mastered time and space and in the process gained the mastery of the self in the four lower bodies, in the lower planes of matter, in the chakras and the balanced Threefold Flame. An Ascended Master has also transmuted at least 51 percent of his karma, fulfilled His Divine Plan, thus qualifying for the ritual of the Ascension – acceleration by the Sacred Fire into the Presence of the Individualized "I AM" Presence. Ascended Masters inhabit the planes of Spirit, the Kingdom of God (God's Consciousness), and may teach unascended individuals in an etheric retreat or in the etheric cities on the etheric plane (the Kingdom of Heaven). 5
It is important for students and people to come to realize that all Ascended Beings are Real, Tangible Beings. Their Bodies are not physical but They can make Them as tangible as our physical bodies are. They live by the Power of Light, by the Power of Divine Energy, by that Stream of Light, Life, and Love as shown on the Chart, coming from the Heart of the Presence into our physical bodies. They have entered into that Presence, therefore They no longer have to call It forth. They have the use of this Energy in the various Qualifications. Through thought and feeling They can mold It into whatever is required. As blood flows through the physical body, that Light flows through Their Bodies. That Light beats Their Hearts and carries the Energy through Their Bodies. Their Hearts and Bodies have become all Light Substance. The Activity of Light Radiates from the Heart giving the body a Pink Glow. Our bodies constantly change - because in building them, past qualification of energy and substance is utilized, while the Ascended Ones retain Theirs Eternally, because Their Activity is Reality.
The Life of Ascended Masters is Practical and Natural, although it may seem Transcendent from the human sense. When we understand That and can feel It, then They can give greater Assistance. By giving our attention first to the Presence and then to an Ascended Being, that Ray of Light and Radiance from us goes right to the Master. No matter where He is, He knows it - and by directing His Attention through Consciousness - He comes back on that Ray of Light and knows what is required. Mankind has since Jesus' Ministry felt He was so far beyond the human being that it was impossible to reach Him. Yet many times He has wanted to come close and give Assistance, but could not because the individual's feeling held Him so far away." 3
The Ascended Masters are the "Teachers" of mankind referred to by the prophet Isaiah (chapter 30, verses 20 - 21): " . . . yet shall not thy Teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy Teachers, and thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, 'This is the Way, walk ye in it'."
