IF ANYONE ON EARTH TODAY DOUBTS that we truly are in the Latter Days, the global catastrophes alone should be evidence enough to convince him. We have the prophecy of Jesus two thousand years ago as a guideline of what signs or marks of this age should awaken us. We have the psychics and the channels of the present uniformly agreeing that Earth is experiencing the catastrophes of the end times. Even some of the most conservative religious leaders are proclaiming it as fact.
When the disciples asked Jesus for the signs or the marks of the Latter-Day period, he replied, according to Luke 21:9–11, 25–28, as given in the New English Bible:
“When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not fall into panic. These things are bound to happen first; but the end does not follow immediately. . . . Nation will make war upon nation, kingdom upon kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and famines and plagues in many places; in the sky, terrors and great portents. . . .
“Portents will appear in sun, moon and stars. On earth nations will stand helpless, not knowing which way to turn from the roar and surge of the sea; men will faint with terror at the thought of all that is coming upon the world; for the celestial powers will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with great power and glory. When all this begins to happen, stand upright and hold your heads high, because your liberation is near.”
But when asked for more specifics by his followers, Jesus cautioned them that he could not give all the facts at that time. First, much of the truth was too harsh for them to bear, and was too far into the future for them to absorb and to comprehend.
Second, much depended on the law of cause and effect, or karma. How much could Earth beings accomplish in the Piscean Age for two thousand years, before being allowed to enter into the Aquarian Age?
Nothing is foreordained except cosmic cycles and universal laws. If man had applied universal law properly during the prescribed cosmic cycles, he could have eliminated, and still can eliminate, much of the suffering that now results from entering into a new dimension. With free will, man individually and collectively sets up his own conditions by which he sheds the old and receives the new.
Through the correct understanding of individual and group karma, we know that most of those who are present on Earth today are those who either created or participated in the causes which are now the effects present on Earth.
The program workers and the light projectors of the New Age are those who can teach and demonstrate how best to work harmoniously with universal law within the cosmic cycles and patterns which cannot be changed.
Preparing Mass Subconsciousness
The spiritually enlightened use whatever means are at their disposal in the time and the place where they are functioning. In this sense, the mass media are exploiting the inner tensions and fears which are subconsciously present. Actually, they are outpicturing what the spirit within all men is telegraphing to the conscious, material level.
For years, themes of mass holocausts have been broadcast over television and in movie theaters. Some light workers have become disturbed with this morbid preoccupation. They consider it an exploitation of fear.
Thus, they may be overlooking a tool to be used for a higher good and for a proper preparation of the masses. Through these themes the subconscious mind of the world’s population receives a cushion against the impending events about to burst forth on a massive scale. It gives advance preparation, for some to know what to expect if they personally, or even impersonally, are involved in such tragic events.
The repetitions and dramatizations of these holocausts are like a group nightmare, which can be likened unto joint psychic visions, dreams or premonitions. Use them to teach the meaning behind the events. Use them to teach individuals and groups how to cope correctly with such disasters. Take advantage of these potential events by demonstrating spiritual techniques which can eliminate them or alleviate them.
In another respect, many psychics wonder why they receive impressions of impending tragedies. They are frightened by them. They beg Spirit to eliminate such talents from their lives. Instead, they should be thanking God within for alerting them, their loved ones and other people whom they can reach, for the diverting of the impending thought patterns revealed to them.
In the event of not being able to divert an impending energy pattern, it is their obligation to prepare the people or the area involved with means to cope with the calamity. Spirit has given us ESP (Elementary Spiritual Powers) to use with love on the physical action plane of life. Therefore, instead of asking for these talents to be removed, the spiritually developed individual should be asking how these gifts can be used for the protection and the good of others.
God means good. Even though intellectual mind or soul memory does not understand fully how good can evolve out of painful patterns and events, the spiritually awakened person accepts this as primary principle, then uses every tool at his command to put it into concrete action in whatever sphere of influence is available.
Facing the Law of Karma
Neither does this mean that the spiritually awakened should rejoice in the fact that these catastrophes are now occurring everywhere, and in every aspect of human life, on Earth. Many program workers are experiencing a form of conflict between what they know is inevitable and the guilt in feeling happy that the end days finally are upon mankind here. It is not that they are wishing to see man suffer, but they are anxious that the events awaken others to a new life, a new opportunity for evolutionary advancement.
So, there is a need for balance within those with advance information and insight. Otherwise, their conflict dams up the good that can flow from them, that which is part of their spiritual function.
Every light worker on Earth in these Latter Days has to be prepared to face and to deal with mass catastrophes, because it is the nature of the missions and the roles chosen before incarnation. If these are not present in you yet, you must develop insight, understanding, stamina and balance between the two extremes of your spiritual and mortal natures.
The errors which man has created, both individually and collectively, must be corrected in these final purification days, which we call the Mark Age or cleansing period, before he is permitted to enter into a New Age of brotherhood and spiritual expression.
Therefore, spiritual workers know that we must invoke cleansing of the soul, of the mind, of the emotions, and that these invocations directly will filter down into the physical plane. To withstand the shock and the horror of this on a mass level, we are instructed to stand together, to work together, to visualize and to decree together for the ultimate good which comes out of these inevitable cleansings.
So, when you work individually or collectively for cleansing, be firm and unbending in your recognition of light and truth within the situation. Like a proper physician of spiritual truth, be ready to treat the pain which comes on all levels, before it penetrates to the physical, or the lowest density of matter.
Light workers are those who work with light. They project light, see the light and continually invoke the light, which is God in all things, regardless of outer circumstances and appearances.
No proper healer aggravates the painful symptoms of a patient’s disease. Instead, the healer is one who soothes and comforts the sufferer. This only can be done, in these Latter Days, by teaching the truth of universal law and by assuring the pain-wracked world that this is part of a cosmic cycle within proper and orderly divine activities.
It is the duty of the light worker to think in terms of: “Father, forgive them, they do not know what they have brought upon themselves.” But it is also the duty of the light worker to accept the will of the Father-Mother God, who knows what proper measures are necessary to bring about the desired cleansing and purification, balance and harmony. “Thy will be done”; not ours, from this mortal, limited view on Earth.
What Are the Catastrophes?
Since 1960, Mark-Age has taught — as revealed primarily through my channelings — that the catastrophes prophesied for these times are not only the physical kind. The Hierarchy (the spiritual government of ascended masters throughout our solar system) has instructed us through my mental communications that the catastrophes in this War of Armageddon are fought on the psychic, the mental and the emotional levels as well as on the physical plane. [See previous entry, Battle of Armageddon.]
Further, we have been informed that there is no single phenomenon, sign or event that can herald the ending of the Piscean Age and the dawn of the Age of Aquarius. The New Age worker should not be seeking such a single mark of this age — such as an earthquake destroying an entire continent, a flipping of the poles, a weather-pattern shift that destroys all physical forms — but rather should see all upheavals as part of a total transmutation from one level of consciousness to a higher one. The Earth and all life form on it are moving from the third dimensional frequency (material form) into fourth dimensional frequency (spiritual, etheric, light form).
The great battle is taking place within the consciousness of every person on the planet and in the astral environs connected to Earth. Examining the events of the world today, we must admit that Armageddon is not coming; it is here now. The Mark Age period is the age of marks and signs of that battle. A few of the catastrophes we are fighting individually and as a race are as follows:
ECONOMIC CHAOS: This is not limited to a few, to a particular country, to a certain class of people, to a particular political ideology. Imbalance of world finances affects each and every one.
ENERGY CRISIS: This commodity is needed by all in varying degrees. It cannot be hoarded by a few for the advancement of only small segments of the population. It cannot be used as a form of blackmail.
POLLUTION: All life-giving sources (food, water, air) are so threatened today that there is the possibility of exterminating life on the planet. This no longer is conjecture, it has become scientific fact. It means also that even those light workers who have spiritual knowledge and who use the highest spiritual techniques likewise are threatened in further functioning with a physical form.
A master over the physical dimension might be able to demonstrate his superiority over poisonous substances once, twice, three times perhaps, in order to make a valid point of demonstration. But no one can eat, drink and breathe poison twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, indefinitely. The preservation of even light workers is at stake at present on the planet.
POLITICAL POWER: Wars, revolutions, military dictatorships, corruption on every level of government, even in the self-governing or democratic nations, threaten peace, balance, growth in every corner of the globe.
CORRUPTION: The moral fiber, the spiritual principles, the standard requirements for living in groups, whether as families or communities, have become so corrupted as to disrupt every facet of human endeavor at this point. Indeed, as prophesied in the Old and New Testaments: children are against parents, husband is against wife, followers are against leaders (whether they are true or false leaders, right or wrong in their policies), worker is against boss, industry strangles industry, color hates color, religion opposes religion, philosophy destroys philosophy, science denounces spirituality.
Responsibilities of Light Workers
Man is not yet fully awakened about the ending of the age, the need to cleanse all errors and to prepare for the Aquarian Age to come. Thus the burden to herald the dawning of this New Age and to teach the proper spiritual methods for the cleansings and the preparations falls directly on the enlightened, the advance guard; the program workers, as they are called by the Hierarchal Board.
Now we arrive at the crux of the matter and should ask, “What can I personally and individually do about this global condition?”
In the first place, realize that if you do not face it here and now, in these Latter Days, you eventually will have to face it somewhere, sometime, somehow. The golden opportunity in the externalization of this hierarchal plan and program is that you have an entire race and planet to work with, and to help you while it is being done. For cleansing and purification of the Earth planet and all life form on it is an inevitable and final cosmic plan that cannot be aborted.
It is true, however, that many spiritual students fear they might fail. They are remembering, from past karmic records of the race on Earth, that such programs and plans by the spiritual government of this solar system had failed; namely, those civilizations of the Cains and Abels in Lemuria, and Atlantis.
But everything that has gone before in the race records is a platform of experience on which to base new and higher realizations and determinations. The linking of the light workers during the Latter Days is more powerful than at any time in past race history here. In the unity of the light workers is the strength of the program.
Jesus encouraged us for this time and unified action, by saying, “The things that I do, you shall do, but even greater things.” [John 14:12] He meant that individually as awakened Christed beings we could do what he demonstrated in that incarnation, but collectively we could accomplish even greater global projects.
For this task the externalization of the Hierarchal Board on Earth through the Mark-Age Unit has provided five divisions for linking the light workers in collective spiritual action: I Am Nation News, I Am Network of Light, Centers of Light, University of Life, and Healing Haven.
The pattern through our Master Jesus, and as expanded on and exemplified through the Mark-Age Unit, is set and secure. Now is the time for us to express it outwardly, and to fulfill the mission on Earth for which each and every one of us has been incarnated in these Latter Days.
The awakened, the elite, the elect, the light workers, call them by what term you will, now are obligated to join together and overcome the impending catastrophes which mark this age and which represent the challenges to our devotion and determination to act as one child of the Father-Mother God, which is the good or God in each of us.
Collectively we must impress on the minds of our fellowmen that three things are essential to the continuing of life on this planet. In fact, as we rend the seventh and final veil separating man from knowing his spiritual nature, there is no possibility on this Earth or elsewhere in this solar system to exist without accepting and expressing these three essential facts of life:
FIRST: Everything in life is interrelated. It was created that way. One area of life, one form of life, one level of consciousness impinges upon each other area, form or level. There is nothing that is separated from anything else.
SECOND: What hurts, destroys, takes advantage of one person eventually hurts, destroys or damages every other person on the planet. Mankind must wake up finally, after two hundred and six million years of experiment on this Earth planet, and accept the fact, realize and know: I Am my brother’s keeper. Every thought, feeling, word expressed influences and touches all others, seen or unseen.
THIRD: Those light workers or spiritual students awakened to this realization of I Am my brother’s keeper must eliminate the errors on the planet by thought, by action, by their works and words. It does no good to plant good spiritual seeds of truth in corrupted, polluted, soiled minds. It is contrary to divine law.
The negative conditions are in power on the planet at this time. Therefore, in the Latter Days or the Mark Age period — with mass catastrophes as marks of this very age — we must cleanse totally all the error conditions, evil thoughts and intentions in order that we can plant with our light projections the truth, the light, the love of God within.
Now, as broadcasters of light, let us drive out, denounce, deny the evil that is a holocaust on this Earth. In its place, together, linked as one I Am Nation of light, we then can plant the truth of cosmic laws and the love of God and the love for our fellowmen everywhere. I Am my brother’s keeper.
