There is an action in understanding the “I AM Presence” and in the application that differs from any other teaching. It is not a matter of following a personality, no matter how much charisma he may have but, it does give the weaker ones an excuse to not make the effort to stand on there own. They want something to worship in the outer tangible world. To attain the Goal it takes more than just following some human being.
Through application by purifying our Inner Bodies, learning how the “I AM Presence” Works and learn to let the “Presence” be the Doer, then in the right way Calling the “Presence” into Action differs from the various means of other teachings. Instead of praying for something you want or even for the good of someone else, or through mental force concentrate to produce manifestation, or working under a guru, or calling to a Being like Jesus as the orthodox world knows Him. In the latter case it is not the Master Jesus who is limited but the lack of understanding in the caller. In making Calls, the “Presence” will not produce imperfection, but sometimes when an individual is so determined to have a certain thing he desires the “Presence” may let it come about although it is not the Divine Plan and it proves out to be not the best for him. That is done to teach him a lesson he would not have learned any other way.
When the “Presence” is Called into Action to fulfill a certain portion of the Divine Plan or for something that is in accordance with the Divine Plan, then the Inner Action is: since the “I AM Presence” of all individuals being one in Action, then that Action - the answer to the Call - benefits everyone, not just the ones for which the Call is made.
Before we had the use of electricity, it was there but we lacked the means to harness it. So has mankind been through the ages in relation to spiritual powers.* * *

Everyone knew his/her own Individualized “I AM Presence” in the beginning, as we know each other today. This means more than just intellectually knowing of It and that It is there above or outside of you. It is anchored in your heart, but the greater Portion is outside, above.
It dwells at Inner Levels at great heights and Works at Cosmic Levels in a creative capacity. It is active constantly, and independent of you in the physical here. It is not just a stationery figure above you. All the Work It does is done through wielding Light Rays.
To get the awareness of the “I AM Presence”, one has to give attention to It, and learn to contemplate It. Upon awakening give attention to It before getting involved in outer activities.
To contemplate, if possible be where you will not be disturbed for awhile. Still yourself. Think of your “I AM Presence” as an Individual Living Being. A Being of blazing White Light, a Being of Love, of Power, of Wisdom and all God Qualities. If It was not there you would not be here. You would not have Life. Try to realize that It has the Power to produce whatever is required. It can protect you and does, even unknown to you many times. It gives you intelligence and being. Without It you would not have a body nor would it function.
Be grateful to again know about your “I AM Presence”. Call on the Law of Forgiveness for all your mistakes and those of all mankind. Pour love to It, relax and be at Peace.

Application is important to do each day, rhythmically, not just spasmodically. We eat, we sleep each day as a rule. We do not eat just once and think that is sufficient. The Earth makes its revolution each day so the Sun’s rays cover certain portions of the planet each day.
The Ascended Master Teaching is for the purpose of spiritual self-development and to attain Mastery. The only way that can be done is through application. The same way a baby grows, it needs to eat and exercise, and no one else can do that for it.
One can read any number of recipe books and it will not produce a meal, not until one applies it and makes effort in the right direction. Application should be made at least twice a day, morning and evening. In the early Work it was suggested that the students do it three times a day.
Application, particularly for those of you whom this Teaching is new, need to do some decrees, not just meditate. When a person wants to learn to play the piano, he/she does not just meditate or read about it. One has to practice, releasing Energy through the physical body. By also meditating it will help one to become a good musician.
Application is more than just decreeing. It means to do some meditation or contemplation, giving attention to the “Presence”; do some decreeing and some studying. Even though you have read these things before, by going over them again you may see some points you have missed. As your consciousness expands and you get familiar with these unorthodox things and terminology, the “Presence” can Illumine other points to you as your thinking process changes.
As you make application you will begin to feel more positive in your feelings, have more assurance and confidence, perhaps get a new meaning and purpose in Life, the reason for being. Then later on come to know the “I AM Presence” more and more as a Reality. Also that there is a Divine Plan beyond the human way of living

On the day of the Full Moon in the month of May, Lord Gautama Buddha has each year since His Ascension, the departure from the physical plane, given His outpouring of the Buddha Life Force. This is known as the Wesak Festival. This was the provision made for Him to infuse His particular Blessings and Benediction upon the people of the Earth once a year.
This takes place in the month of May because that is the Anniversary of His Birth, His Attainment of Buddha-hood and His Ascension. The time of the full moon was chosen because the emotional bodies of the people are at their fullest tide, and there is more opportunity to pour the Radiation from the Realms of Light.
Each year Lord Gautama has always made this Visitation in the lower atmosphere over the hills of India. Thus sending forth His outpouring to the assembled White Brotherhood, to the pilgrims who were able to be there in their physical bodies and to the students who could consciously leave their bodies and attend in their Inner Bodies, and spread the Radiation over the Earth, the people and through nature.
Until 1953, the Visitation was always made in His Luminous Presence. But since then He has appeared there in His Ascended Light Body, visible to the Inner Sight. Since becoming the Lord of the World (January 1, 1956), the full gathered momentum which He has gained and which enabled Him to fill that Position is released at the Wesak Festival through the attending pilgrims to all evolutions on Earth. Now that the Western mind has been made aware of the Great White Brotherhood, the Retreats and many Inner Activities, students can direct their consciousness there at the time of the Wesak Festival and attend in consciousness and their Inner Bodies.

It was said that when the psychic and astral realm was in process of disillusionment and purification, we would become cognizant through earth rocking, tornadoes, tidal waves, plagues, epidemics and various things. If there are groups to make the right kind and sufficient application much of this would be handled and avoided by the Great Ones at inner levels before it manifested in the outer world.

The New Age - the Age of Freedom (A.F.) stands for Freedom, Liberty, Justice, Opportunity. Freedom is the masculine aspect, and is Saint Germain’s Cosmic Quality and Name. Liberty is the other part of the Seventh Ray, the feminine aspect. Justice and Opportunity are Portia’s, (Saint Germain’s Divine Complement); Her Qualities and Names and Service to Earth.
May 1, 1979 starts year 25 of the New Era of one Cycle of 2,000 years of the Seventh Ray, the Age of Freedom. Although the Sixth Ray Cycle closed January 1, 1954 according to the Master Jesus, and therefore in a sense the next Cycle began. But the Master Saint Germain, Who is Chohan and the Authority of the New Cycle, asked permission to have the ceremony (at Inner Levels) on May 1st instead. Because the month of May is dear to Him, and especially May 1st, was very dear to Him in His last (final) embodiment.
The New Cycle of 2,000 years of the Seventh Ray, from the Inner Standpoint officially began May 1, 1954. Hence on May 1st we celebrated the 25th year of the Age of Freedom (A.F.) which will be the calendar for the New Cycle. On May 1, 1954 Saint Germain received the Cosmic Crown and that Coronation gave Him the Authority to increase an understanding in the power and presence of Freedom and the Violet Fire and Ray which He represents to this planet. This brought about an expansion of the consciousness of Freedom at Inner Levels.

The Maltese Cross is Saint Germain’s Electronic Pattern, and also that of the Goddess of Justice since they came forth from the same Spirit Spark or White Fire Body. The Maltese Cross represents the Freedom Flame to Earth.
“Saint Germain, Chohan of the Seventh Ray, represents the perfect (mature) Man to planet Earth. He Is the Bridge between the Kingdoms of the Angels, the Elementals and Man. He Is the Bridge between Heaven and Earth. With outstretched arms, He forms within Himself the Maltese Cross of Freedom.” (Lord Maha Chohan)
The north end of the vertical bar represents Saint Germain and/or the Ascended Masters, the south end represents Man, the east end of the cross bar represents the Elemental Kingdom; the west end represents the Angelic Host. The Illumination Flame is represented in the center.* * *
Of the Maltese Cross, the two points at the end of each arm, eight in all, represent Beatitudes: humility, obedience, comfort, justice, mercy, purity, peace, gratitude. By holding an attitude makes it become a reality. Beatitude = be the attitude. By living and becoming these Beatitudes, possessing these virtues, one can become the mature Man which Saint Germain represents to this planet.* * *
