Our Most Beloved Hilarion
The self-conscious Flame of Life chooses the state of consciousness which it consciously inhabits, and becomes one with the mass radiation of that particular state in which it functions, because it is aware of the incarnation which it will take and the parents through whom the physical vehicle will manifest.
Every Quality, every Virtue and every state of consciousness which might be considered the sum total of various qualities are ONE.
This may seem difficult for an individual to understand, but upon giving a little thought to the subject it can be easily explained. For instance, all water is one, with the same elements rendering the same service. A man in India, Alaska, the United States or Europe may choose to experience the benefits of water, and the exact same results will ensue.
Likewise, all air is one, whether the individual breathes it in the Himalayan Heights or the Great Rocky Mountains; so, also, conscious thought and feeling are one throughout this Universe.
There is a stratum of energy vibrating at a certain wave length which is constantly fed by individuals representing every possible emotion and thought.
Love is ONE, and when an individual is loving, he instantly tunes into the love stratum, and becomes one in consciousness with all who love throughout the Universe.
Wisdom is ONE, and when an individual is seeking wisdom, he is instantly tuned into the vibratory waves of wisdom which are fed by the Divine Beings in the Realms Above and is being tapped by the scholars of the world.
Purity is ONE, and every soul who aspires to purify itself, instantly enters the stratum of feeling and thought where the pressure of purity becomes his particular strength. It is also true of the discordant qualities, and one cannot entertain an individual thought without becoming instantly ONE with the mass stratum of those qualities, and one with the other individuals vibrating at that particular wave length throughout the planet - so, the oft repeated statement, "like attracts like".
The individual consciously, through freewill, is constantly rising and falling through the various stratums as the emotions and thoughts fluctuate. The individual will soar to great heights when his attention is one-pointed on some constructive quality and he tunes in, for a moment, to the heights of bliss and happiness, but - through the power of freewill - he can likewise tune into any of the inharmonious qualified stratums and then suffer the reaction as it flows into his vehicles.
The Ascended Master Consciousness is a constantly sustained attention upon the constructive rates of vibration that never descend below Tolerance, Harmony, Peace, Faith, Love, Understanding and the desire for Service.
As these qualities are invited, and as the chela holds his Cup above the streams of human discord, he begins to experience a steady radiation of Light and Life, and thus the Ascended Master Consciousness is attained and sustained by conscious effort.
You may go with your Cup where you will... you may fill it at whatever fount you choose... you may drink of the muddy waters of humankind's effluvia, or you may, through conscious effort, sip the Nectar of the Gods.
