Saint Germain explains how He grew to Love the Violet Flame!
Beloved Saint Germain
“The first requisite to “hearing” and “feeling” the keynote of the Master is the control of the energy in the aura, and bringing it into a semblance of quietude. Here, music is the natural medium by which the general “hurly-burly” of daily living can be stilled. The development of musical therapy is one of the main activities of the Ceremonial Ray for the future, but, meanwhile, until the greater numbers come to understand the activity in the near future, we must endeavor to quiet the inner bodies of the students, particularly after they come from the outer world, where they are engaged in creating and dissolving myriad shadow forms in the questionable task of “making a living.”
The second requisite to “hearing” and “feeling” the keynote of the Master, is in purifying and dissolving these very shadows that form the garments of the self and which change with every passing day. Here we have the beginning of the use of the Sacred Fire.
The Violet Consuming Flame is a purifying agent, which I have developed through centuries of time by ENDOWING the Sacred Fire with the quality of dissolving forms, patterns and nuclei of a binding nature.
Through experimentation with it, I have found its efficacy and my faith in it, to make its action instantaneous when I draw it forth for any given purpose. I used to think of the Sacred Fire and draw it into my consciousness as you draw a concentrated sunbeam by a magnifying lens.
Then I would just LOVE IT, as the activity of God, visualizing and seeing it clearly in my mind and feeling it alive within me. I would ENDOW that Sacred Fire with all the power of God, speaking to it without words, knowing that it was the master element in every sphere of activity. The longer I LOVED IT, the more of IT I drew, until the Divine Director told me that I looked like a great yellow sun reclining against the base of a friendly oak tree.
This flame would intelligently ask me what I willed that it should do. This began the beautiful experience in directing the Sacred Fire consciously. You will remember I say that many activities seem automatic, but none really are, all being the result of self-conscious direction by intelligence.
I used to direct the Sacred Fire toward people I loved, with a blessing, a conviction of strength, of hope, of courage, and, much later they would tell me how, on a certain day, or at a certain hour, when things seemed dark, a new “lightness” appeared. Of course, I kept my part of the activity to myself, for a blessing given is to be given freely.
At the same time I was dedicated to the cause of freedom, so as my teacher developed in me this deep love for the Sacred Fire, I began to think how I might specifically and permanently ENDOW the Sacred Fire with a particular quality, which might be an assistance to those who would choose to use it to free themselves from the chains and limitations of their own creation. And thus, the Violet Consuming Flame was born one morning before the Sun had reached the horizon, and only the rosy glow of his coming heralded the day.
Adoring the flame, I ENDOWED it with the quality of purification and watched it act, dissolving some of the “tramp” thoughtforms that were floating unclaimed through the atmosphere. It caught them first, like a magnet attracts a steel filing, and then began a process of dissolving the form into its native elements. When the nuclear center of the form (created by the mind and feelings of some inhabitant of the globe) was pierced, it was just like an explosion, as the imprisoned light, coated with the substance of impurity, was released from the magnetic center of that nucleus, and, rejoicing, sped back toward the Sun for repolarization.
Aha! I said within me, this is a representative gift for life, and I took it to my teacher, who smilingly informed me that, although it was not a new use of the Sacred Fire, it was my privilege to give it to mankind for the first time, outside of the retreats, and that it would be the privilege of the Seventh Ray to develop it for the masses.
The CAUSE OF FREEDOM must first be established, that the full effect of freedom may be felt. There are mighty individuals who have served the cause of freedom for centuries, in various activities, where mankind desired to have the fruits of freedom, and knew instinctively that the fruits came to those who served the cause.
What is the CAUSE of freedom? It has been paraphrased through the centuries, wherever men were stirred to valorous action on behalf of country, king or God, and yet, if they were asked to define that CAUSE, I guarantee that there are few who could accurately express an understanding of freedom’s cause.
What is the CAUSE of freedom? GOD. The God-identity of every man has within it the inherent, inbred realization that freedom and Godliness are one.
The divine fiat of life is expansion, unfoldment, perfection, all of which qualities require freedom in order to manifest. A tightly-closed rosebud requires freedom to become a full-blown rose. Even the power of Helios requires freedom to shine. An animal, plant, tree, or man requires freedom to breathe. There is no such thing as progress or evolution, or, in fact, being, without freedom. You might say freedom is God stretching out his arms to increase. Freedom is God in action. The quiescent God, sleeping through the solar night, does not taste of nor enjoy the fruits of freedom, but when the first stirring takes place in the cosmic dawn of a solar system or the birth of a bird, freedom stirs.
I am the SUN of freedom. It is my great privilege to expand the cause of freedom on the earth plane. It is not a quality which is injected into a lifestream, for love of freedom is as inherent within life as is the love of life itself. Freedom and expansion are one. Freedom and activity are one. Freedom and God are one.
And in this new day, dedicated to the freedom of the entire planet and this system of worlds, you will see the God power stretching forth and bursting the chains of limitation.
