Maha Chohan -- 1957
"A Sun Council was called when the Earth had reached its lowest ebb, when there seemed no possibility for it to contribute to the Light of the solar system. At this Conference among the Suns of this galaxy, it was decided that the planet Earth would be returned to primal essence because it was contributing no Light, no music, no constructive radiation to the universe of which it was a part. It was thought best to dissolve this planet, conserving life and returning the substance of the planet itself for re-polarization into the heart of Helios and Vesta. As conservation of life is an essential part of the Cosmic Law.
Lord Sanat Kumara was One among other great and Divine Beings from other stars, Suns and universes Who attended the Council. He went home to His planet determined in His heart to help the Earth. He did not sit in His courtyard surrounded by the magnificent Beings, the Kumaras, the Angels, Devas and His own people, in proximity to His beloved Divine Complement, Venus and just think it was too bad to see the Earth and all that belonged to it being discarded. Sanat Kumara, even One of the greatest of the mystics, had learned the Law of balance as well as Love and He pondered within Himself what He might do to sustain the Earth's place in this system. He asked for the opportunity to give to the Earth His radiation and Light and to act through His developed capacities of thought, feeling and action, as Lord of the World for the Earth. This request was granted.
When He returned Home to His Star, Venus, He made the announcement of His offer and many of those who loved Him well offered to precede Him to Earth and prepare a suitable dwelling for Him. Beloved Lady Venus made the great sacrifice when She felt the great affinity to His feeling world, His desire to come to Earth. She made the sacrifice of representing Father and Mother for the planet Venus, to give Him freedom. Also an activity that took life, energy and work is magnetizing the feminine and masculine aspects to keep an entire planetary evolution progressing for millions of years.
Then those who loved Sanat Kumara so well asked that they might come and create a city fitting for Him on this planet Earth. They were accepted and were escorted into the upper atmosphere of Earth. They abided within the realms of Light under the loving care and hospitality of the Lords of the Second Ray until such time as conditions could be prepared for their first embodiment. They entered the actual gates of birth and were born on Earth a full 900 years before their Lord should come."
Ascended Master Morya -- 1952
"The greatest always being the servant of the lesser, their Cosmic Lord Himself, Sanat Kumara, and three of the Kumaras offered to lead the missionary Band. The Kumaras, with thirty loyal volunteers, prepared for their descent into the atmosphere of the planet Earth knowing full well that They must remain until enough of the children of Earth had awakened to the need of the hour and of the Cosmic Fiat that the Earth must emit more Light. These Earth children, then, must enter into the centuries of training, self control and discipline required to become Lords of their own heart Flame and through that Flame release the Kumaras from their service of Love and Light.
Those pupils of the Kumaras who volunteered to come and build a fitting place for Them, bade goodbye to their families, their homes, their planet and stood in the solemn Court of the Lords of Karma of Earth. This great Council accepted in gratitude the entrance of these souls into the wheel of the Earth's evolution. Each was bound to the wheel of embodiment, Earth experience, and death for so long as the Earth should need their borrowed Light, and none might be released until the hour came when the Earth's own Light was sufficient to pass the Cosmic Law's demand. Only then could these volunteer Beings be cut from this wheel and assume their rightful evolution upon their sweet planet of Love. Has there ever been such a supreme sacrifice? Not for one lifetime, one embodiment of suffering, one death, one birth, but for millions of rounds.
The first duties of these volunteers was to prepare a place for the coming of their Lord. When each soul was bound round by the forgetful bands of Earth's magnetism and entered into birth, only his burning love remained to light his way. Yet each was enabled in those early days, before the wearisome journey had dulled the glow of the spiritual fire, to remember his purpose sufficiently to find his brother pilgrims and unite in the preparation of the Home for Sanat Kumara, as He was to remain in the atmosphere of Earth. This great preparation, taking hundreds of years, is known as the Building of Shamballa."
Lord Maha Chohan -- 1957 & Ascended Master Morya -- 1956
"The founding of Shamballa is the most marvelous activity of practical work, well done. Day in and day out, life in and life out they held the vision of the beautiful city on Venus and they with their hands and workmanship coupled vision with action and created the beautiful White Island, so called because most of its Temples are white, particularly the great one of Sanat Kumara. They used the most beautiful materials that the Earth could offer to duplicate the Shamballa on Venus. This they did, although more than once their entire numbers were wiped out by the savage hordes (who were the laggards) that swept over them while engrossed at their work. They built that beautiful carved bridge over the Gobi Sea of blue waters. It was not still and sanded as it is today, but swiftly moving waters. The bridge over which the pilgrims seeking more Light might pass into the sacred Precincts of the Temples. (Remnants of this bridge may still be seen beneath the shifting sands of the Gobi Desert which, through cataclysmic action, was temporarily changed from blue water to desert land.)
They built among an Earth people who had sunk very low in consciousness and they had to breathe in the breath of all those in embodiment and take care that they did not also breathe in the contamination, because if they did it would have clouded over the vision of their City. All over the world they wrought by the sweat of the brow and not in mystic chariot, the tremendous pieces of marble and the various other heavy stones that formed the mighty edifaces. Some among them who were powerful in the use of magnetization helped them in the erecting of some of these great stones, tons in weight. All along the way the vision was coupled by active work, until that day when the Lemurian Pole Star told, who were able to be cognizant of the event, that the Kumaras were coming. Those who had come before were grateful indeed that they had completed through all those centuries a fitting Home for Sanat Kumara."
Sanat Kumara -- 1953
"I have left Venus before. This is not the first planet which has worn the mantle of My Love. I stood on other orbs, with other evolutions, and I was returned Home victorious in every case. Sometimes one lifestream developing enough Light in his or her heart to pay My ransom. Sometimes an entire evolution developing that radiation required to meet the Cosmic Law's demand. It is not numbers but quality that determines the radiation of Light required to sustain the place of an individual in its evolution, to sustain the place of a planet in a planetary scheme.
The Light of the world is but a quality of feeling that can be generated individually and sustained to a point where the aura, the inner bodies and the atmosphere radiate the pure Light from the Three-fold Flame which is within the heart."
"It is not some metaphysical truth that is difficult to discern, some occult formula which can be evolved only by the ascetic. It is such a simple self-evident Truth and code of life and conduct that the smallest child, the most orthodox consciousness abiding within it can become that Light, first within the small and narrow confines of the personal orbit and then on a larger scale. Those qualities which bring comfort, peace, harmony and balance, those qualities which externalize beauty, tolerance and understanding emit Light through your feeling world and will eventually make even your physical garment self-luminous as they were when you received them first from the heart of your own Electronic Presence, and those feelings which generate happiness in the lives to those you contact make you a Light Bearer. It is as simple as that.
You walk the ways of Earth and rub shoulders with mankind daily, particularly in big cities. Every individual you pass by in your daily association is a potential Light Bearer. When your spoken words, kindly smile, gracious gesture, when your radiation of feeling begets a radiation of happiness, of gratitude, of comfort, of peace in anyone of these, you have expanded Light in your own world and expanded the Light in that of your fellow man. For that instant there has been an increase in the mass Light of the entire planet. Walking down the street or in the stores, the power that is within a smile to light another's face, that is adding to the Light of the world. It is the homely things, the practice of the power and Love of God that transforms a mankind and an evolution from the selfish animal consciousness into the gracious Divine kings and queens of Light which you were once and you must become again.
You are entering into the glorious radiation of the Seventh Ray under the Master Saint Germain, Whose activity is known as Ordered Service, courtliness, kindliness, dignity, and beauty of hourly and daily living.
Light, from the heart of the Sun God to the smallest Elemental is built on the rhythm of the second, the minute and the hour, and the radiation which must come forth from those of you who have vowed within your hearts to love Me free is that Light which calls forth the dormant Light in others.
Shamballa means to make sacred. It is the name of the City of the Sun in the heart of Venus which is My Home…. The final building of Shamballa [meaning the replica built for Earth], over 60,000 years ago, is recorded in occult literature. That too, suffered decay. But the akashic blazing powerful City lives and breathes in the ethers over the Gobi Desert and shall remain there until it is lowered again permanently, into the physical appearance world as the Golden Age proceeds and mankind individually and collectively prove themselves worthy to sustain it for all eternity. It will be My gift to the evolution that I have loved which will remain a part of the Star of Freedom long after I have returned again to My Home, perhaps to go forth again to meet some further star, some more childlike evolution, some more innocent evolving life, for that is love and that is service, and that is joy.
We live but to love life free, and now you have come forth impersonally desirous of understanding the law of your own life, desirous of redeeming the energies of your own world, and desirous of providing the Light from within your own feelings and that of your fellow man, so that I may close My cycle and rise on the Love of your hearts into the glory of My Home, for that beloved, blessed children I thank you. For your Love I am so eternally grateful, and for your desire to know how individually you may contribute to the Light of the world. Mankind thinks spiritual opportunity lies on the mountain top, in the hermitage, in the cloister, in the monastery. Yet, to radiate your own Light and to be cosmic torch bearers lighting the feelings of others, stirring the enthusiasm within your hearts, kindling the fires of faith and hope, awakening interest in brotherhood and selflessness and service, for that you must enter into the mass consciousness, for that We must have leaven, willing to raise the masses through proximity. It is in the darkness that Light is needed. It is in the shadows that the flaming Fire of one awakened soul is required. I came to Earth because it required Light. I continually seek to be of assistance to love free planets and evolutions.
Spiritual service has been cloaked with a oonsciousness of severity and duty, and it has built unconsciously tensions in the most earnest spirits who, feeling and sensing the responsibility of serving Light, neutralize the very activity which the Holy Spirit Itself through the heart would release, which is a happy, buoyant, joyous, controlled love, which brings a response from the Fire and Flame within the heart of those who seem yet so bound in shadow that they do not know how to generate that Light which is their freedom.
I am the Guardian of the Sacred Fire for the planet Earth. That Fire is within your heart. It takes a matter of seconds from the primal essence from the Central Sun Itself to pour down the Silver Cord into your own flesh body which sustains the life and intelligence within the form in which you sit before Me.
[See the Divine Self Chart above for the Silver Cord]
That life is the Sacred Fire of creation, which is the only power which I have used to create and sustain the Light which has poured out from the planet Earth into this universe and given any semblance of luminosity to your star. The same Light, the same Sacred Fire, is within your physical hearts. I have no particular gift within It and the Fire within you is enough to hold the balance for a city, for a nation, for a planet. It is the same power that the Master Jesus used to heal the sick, to raise the dead, to perform every so-called miracle by which He redeemed the Light which was closed in with the shadows of limitation and distress.
The Sacred Fire is the redeemer of the Earth, but it would be best to say the Sacred Fire by which I have being is that Redeemer, and that same redemptive power is within you. Prove it.
Shamballa opens its doors to the Brotherhood [Great White Brotherhood] once every year as the twelve month cycle draws to its close, and We play host to those great Beings Who have offered to guard and protect the evolving mankind on the Earth, and wherever possible teach them the way back Home. For millions of years this activity was a private one, and none less than initiates or adepts or fully free Masters were among our guests, but through the widening of the interest in unascended beings, We are host to many thousands of lifestreams this year, many millions of good men and women stand in their etheric bodies in the atmosphere around Shamballa, accepting Our Light and radiation, though they cannot yet participate mentally, in an alert awakened consciousness in the actual ceremonies of the Flame or be fully aware of what is said in the addresses that are being given by the Brothers and Sisters Who are the Members of the Great Hierarchy and the Great White Brotherhood.
Be the Light of the world. Eighteen years before my going, I place in your hands the Scepter of Dominion which I have brought from Shamballa, and which has remained the property of Lord Maitreya and Myself until this hour. I ask that you use that Scepter individually, where there is sorrow, bring happiness; where there is limitation, bring feedom; where there is death bring life -- for this were you born, for this came you into the world, and for this day has life sustained you for millions of years."

"When all was prepared, Sanat Kumara bade His beloved Venus farewell, ascended into the atmosphere of His own star of beauty and Love, blessed His people, and together with the Kumaras and certain of His Spiritual Court Who were to accompany Him, He consciously descended into the atmosphere of Earth, taking up His abode at the Retreat now knows as Shamballa. The Retreat is now only in the etheric realm.
Out from the Aura of Venus, the first great rosy glow of the expanding Aura of the Kumaras began to suffuse the sky with the glory of a Celestial Dawn. Then upward soared a great five-pointed star until it stood suspended above the planet Venus intensifying the Aureole of colors. All the souls of Venus knew that any Cosmic activity of the great Kumaras was presaged by the presence of the Star which appeared to herald announcements or decrees of the Lords of the Flame which would affect the progress of the great Venusian State. Every heart on Venus was focused on that Star, waiting its message of the hour. Slowly and majestically there rose into the Rays of the Star, four shining Golden Figures that stood for a moment pouring out Their blessing on the planet of their birth and their hearts' deepest Love. Little did their children know the deep feeling in the hearts of the Kumaras as They bade Their Star goodbye, not for a lifetime but for uncertain centuries yet unborn from the womb of time. Then a burst of sound, as the people of Venus saw the Star begin to move outward toward the periphery of their sphere, and within it, moving slowly and majestically, the figures of the Solar Lords. All fell on their knees and a beautiful hymn of blessing and Love rose from the inhabitants of Venus, tinged with the awareness of parting, and enfolded the departing figures in a mantle of most sacred Love. Then the four Kumaras left the Light of Venus for the shadow of the earth's aura. Out of the seven Kumaras, four sacrificed Themselves for the sins of the world, and the instruction of the ignorant to remain till the end of the present manvantara.
Oh, how different the reception than the parting. See the Earth spinning darkly on its bended axis. No hearts upraised, no song of welcome gratitude. Ah! Yes, about 100 small pinpoints of Light, like faint, flicking candles, guide the Cosmic Masters' descent, and slowly and majestically the great pink Aura blankets the Earth. What is the sudden comfort, hope and peace that enters into the hearts of men? What causes the withered flowers to raise their heads, the birds to sing with new sweetness, the children to laugh again? What is this mysterious, unseen ether that has entered into the very atmosphere of Earth? Only 100 waiting spirits know, as they kneel in reverent Love before the smiling presence of their longed for Lord. Ah, Sanat Kumara, Lord of Love. One day shall we return you and your shining Band to your own beloved Star, and as You go, the shining Light of Earth will be a mighty crest that carries You triumphant, leaving us a Star of Freedom, accepted by the Cosmic Law, as a permanent focus of blessing in our system, through Your Love.
When He entered into that Temple of Light Great was His gratitude to those blessed Beings who had built it. It reminded Him so much of His own beautiful court on the planet Venus. Those Beings earned a tremendous karma of good merit for that service. It is wise to think on these things, when we think on the mystics and seers who have been, who are now and who are yet to come. Because the vision not coupled with actual service according to your means, capacities and talents will never be visible, tangible manifestation of works well done. In the etheric realms are visions without limit, thought by many a man but never brought to form. When Sanat Kumara returned from that Conference with the thought of Earth's plight in His consciousness, one of those Beings for whom He felt very much was the Planetary Silent Watcher of the Earth. If the planet which She had held within Her consciousness from the time that Helios and Vesta gave each Planetary Silent Watcher the form of a planet, think what that would have meant to Her if that planet was removed. The other six Planetary Silent Watchers would have continued but She would have had to return to the system from whence She came and Her great service would not have been completed.
The great Silent Watcher of the entire planetary scheme has under Her seven Planetary Silent Watchers, just as in My office as Maho Chohan there are acting under My direction seven Chohans of the Rays. It would have been devastating to the Silent Watchers to have the fourth Silent Watcher and Her activity removed, as it would be for Me to have the Ray of Purity removed from the spectrum which I work. The Silent Watcher for the Earth is smaller than any of the Others. She is extremely beautiful, and extremely grateful to Sanat Kumara."
The End of Part I
Nancy's Note: Earth humans often have a difficult time with the purity of love and its verbal demonstrations that will greet us once we ascend to the 5th dimension. We tend to think it is artificial, insincere, or manipulative. We are accustomed to love as it is on Earth—tainted with impure motivations and personal need.
One reason I seek to share the Law of Life & Teachings of Divine Beings is to allow us to adjust between the exquisite beauty and purity of love that we will experience upon ascension -- and -- the lower levels of beauty and love we have known on Earth's 3rd dimension of duality.
Amazingly, moving into the ALL GOOD requires adjustment! It takes time to trust the ALL GOOD!
