Discourse 23

Discourse 23 December 19, 1932



INVOCATION: Thou Mighty, Infinite Intelligence! Thou who dost have Power over

all things! We welcome Thy All-Pervading Presence, Thou All- Pervading Life, the

animating Principle of every human being. We give thanks that, " 'I AM' the Great

and Mighty Presence"; that " 'I AM' anchored in the heart of every one of God's

children, fulfilling the Perfect Plan in spite of all resistance of the outer activity of

the mind."

We give praise and thanks that the conscious direction of Thy Mighty Energy is

sufficient by those of understanding to bless and to prevail with Thy Wondrous

Light and Intelligence everywhere.

I bring you Greetings from the Great Host, and personally from Jesus, who will

again speak to you over His Ray today.


In the Fullness of My Love, I come to you again today over the Great Light and

Sound Ray, this time to direct consciously the Healing Ray to every one of the

students. This Ray I will sustain for two weeks every day, that they may have the

Radiance of the Healing Power.

In My Ministry to mankind among the hills of Judea, I stirred the latent memory

within the Inner Records of mankind, and its Work is still going on today. I wish

the students to understand that preceding all conscious healing upon My part,

within My own mind I was always conscious that: " 'I AM' the only Healing

Presence" and, as that "Unlimited I AM Presence," I had the Right, the Power, and

the Ability, through that Presence, to command all outer activity of the mind to be

silent and obey Its Command.

Thus when I spoke to individuals, I spoke with that Authority of the "I AM

Presence," which I recognized as the Only Intelligence and Power acting, or that

could act. I was conscious of the outer activity of the minds of those of humanity

about Me, but as I said to you before, it was only when I began using, " 'I AM' the

Resurrection and the Life," that the fullness of My Mission, and how it was to be

fulfilled was entirely revealed. This is the particular point I wish to stress with the

students today: that within each one of them is the same "Mighty I AM Presence"

which I used to accomplish the Perfection of that Mighty Presence. This seemed to

humanity at that time the performing of miracles. However, I assure you, it was

but consciously setting into action and use Cosmic Laws that are ever about you

—to be set into activity through conscious direction. The mistake that students

make and which delays their achievement is in feeling that they are acting a

falsehood in declaring the Perfection they do not yet see manifest in their

appearance or activity. I tell you sincerely from My own Experience that we must

acknowledge the One Presence, Intelligence and Power, then claim It as our own in

our every thought and activity. It is the only way this Mighty Perfection can be

brought into the outer appearance and the fullness of your use. Because that

Perfection has not yet appeared—seemingly—should not deter you from applying

and claiming Perfection as your own, for anyone with average intelligence has but

to stop and think that the Energy, the Life- Principle which he is using, is God, the

"Mighty I AM Presence." Therefore, Its Presence, Power, and Energy is always Selfsustaining.

In the claiming of this Mighty Presence and Activity, you consciously

set It into action in your Life, home, world and affairs. Today, as in the time of My

Attainment, the financial struggle seems to be most weighing; and yet within the

reach of your conscious manipulation and direction of the Mighty Energy,

Substance and Opulence about you, you have everything with which to draw to

you that Wondrous, Omnipresent Opulence of God.

you that Wondrous, Omnipresent Opulence of God.

When you say "I AM, " you are stirring that into

action to fulfill your conscious demand. One of the first and mightiest things that

became clear in My consciousness was My ability, everyone's ability, to qualify this

energy, consciously directed, with whatever the seeming need demanded. Thus the

energy may produce for your use, gold, silver, money, food, clothing, means of

conveyance, or whatever the conscious demand is.

All this you must claim with determined conscious effort which knows that in the

conscious demand is the "I AM Presence" speaking and acting. Therefore, It has all

Power and Authority to clothe whatever the demand is with Its kind.

In the consciousness that you are the "I AM Presence" acting at all times, you then

must know that you are, that moment of recognition, an invincible magnet of

attraction—which causes every activity of the Universe to rush to you to fulfill the

demand. The only reason it does not seem to be so is because somewhere in your

consciousness there is a feeling of uncertainty, either of your ability, of your

authority, or the Omnipresence of It to act; but I assure you, as one having attained

and having gone through the complete process of attaining, that it is a pleasure,

the privilege of Myself and Others, to place before you these simple Laws, yet

Mighty and Invincible in their activity—which will give you Freedom and

Dominion over all the things that seem to be such a mountain

of obstruction in your way. As you continue to accept and use these Laws in your

activity, you will find that you are attaining Dominion, not only over the one

element, but all four elements—earth, water, air, and fire.

When you have become conscious of the "Flame of your Divinity," you are acting

from the highest of the four elements, which is Fire, and the True Activity of


As the conscious activity is to the unconscious, so is the Conscious Use of the

Flame to the recognition of the Light. The natural element of your soul is the

"Flame," accounting for the ancient Fire and Sun worship. When one becomes

conscious that he has, is, can use and direct this Consuming Flame, he has entered

into Mighty Power.

When one becomes conscious that he has Dominion over the four elements, he has

but to practice its use to become conscious that he may direct the lightning,

master the storm, control the waters, and walk in the midst of the fire unharmed.

Will you kindly tell Me how any being can have the use of anything until he

acknowledges it —and knows that he has the ability to make it his servant in use?

Then by the practice of its use, he becomes absolutely invincible in its direction. I

wish so earnestly to make clear to you that you are being given and taught the

exact Laws which I used—and which everyone who has attained the Ascended State

must use.

It is all a matter of use, once you know of these Laws, and that the "I AM Presence"

which you are has all Intelligence, Power and Authority to consciously direct the

energy through the outer activity of your mind. Then do not fear to use It to heal,

to prosper, to bless and to enlighten your fellowman.

Erase from your mind forever that there can be any selfishness in your conscious

recognition that the "I AM Presence" is directing. It matters not what you require

for your attainment, wherein it makes you more able, or of greater ability and

power to bless. Then do you not see that there can be no selfishness in the desire

for this greater attainment and Perfection? For any individual to feel that he must

wait upon the attainment of another is a great mistake. Individuals may attain

only through their own conscious effort in this wonderful recognition. No one can

grow for another or attain for another, but each may be of immense help to the

other by knowing with intensity: " 'I AM' the only Presence and Intelligence acting

within that individual" for the one you wish to help. This may be qualified with

whatever the person seems to need most.

Every individual's first duty is Adoration and Love to the "One Mighty I AM

Presence," which is everywhere present.

Presence," which is everywhere present.

Do you not see how in this, it is a joyous privilege to love your so-called enemy,

because: " 'I AM' the only Real Presence and Activity anywhere!" If the ignorance of

the outer activity of the mind seems to have created disorder, pain and limitation,

then you know that the miscreation has no power of its own. There is nothing but

the wrong belief of the individual to sustain it; consequently, it has no Selfsustaining


If you have been unfortunate enough to create in-harmony, disorder, limitation,

then can you not see that you alone, through the Power of your "I AM Presence,"

the Consuming Flame, must consciously call on the Law of Forgiveness, consume

through that Flame of Life which you are, everything in your world which you

have wrongly created?

This should easily make it clear to you how you set about to cleanse your world of

its disorder and its mistaken creation. Then you stand forth, clothed with the Sun,

the Light of Eternal Life, Youth, Beauty and Opulence, holding within your hand for

instant use the Scepter of Power of the "I AM Presence," which you are.

It is important to know that this One Mighty Energy does all things according to

the quality you give It, or the wish you want fulfilled.

One thing students should be intensely conscious of, and that is: " 'I AM' the

Eternal, Harmonizing

Presence and Activity everywhere I move, and of everything to which my thought

is directed." This, constantly used with the feeling of Its Invincible Power, will keep

the atmosphere of your world purified, harmonized, and held in readiness for any

conscious direction to go forth with great speed to its accomplishment.

When you wish to speak with authority, silently to or of another individual, speak

his given name, and you will find the help, the energy sent, much more easily

received. It is like calling the attention of a person to whom you wished to speak.

Naturally, your first impulse is, if you are going to speak to one of the family, you

first say Don, Mary, or Dick, to get his or her attention; and then you proceed to

give your message. So it is when directing the energy silently.

Within the Inner World, in this recognition and use of the "I AM Presence,"

knowing that: " 'I AM' everywhere present," you see how you may speak to one

across the earth through the "I AM Presence" as readily as though that one stood in

the room in your physical presence.

I warn you, if you attempt to use this Knowledge to harm another, then remember

that through your own soul and body will pass the bolt, or your intent to another.

Try always to remember that you are not human beings so-called, but you are Gods

and Goddesses in embryo—which through the conscious effort you can bring into

Full Dominion.

I say to you, Beloved Students of Light: Arise! Awaken! to the fullness of your God-

Dominion. Fearlessly use the conscious knowledge and direction of this "Mighty I

AM Energy" for your freedom, prosperity, blessing and enlightenment. Each of you

is a glittering, dazzling Jewel of Light projected into a world of chaos and

darkness, that the Radiance of your Light may expand, expand, and again expand,

that all darkness of the earth be consumed in this Mighty Radiance of the "I AM

Presence," which you are.

Do not hesitate, Beloved Children! Grasp this Scepter of your Power and Dominion!

Use It to heal, to bless, to prosper, to enlighten, and you will find all earthly things

bowing before you and rushing to fulfill your slightest demand.

Such, Beloved Ones, Beloved Brothers and Sisters, the "One Mighty Presence, which

'I AM,' " is the Conscious Ability I convey to you this day—with its Self- sustaining

Strength, Courage, Power and Enlightenment—to go forth, attaining your Freedom

now with these Personal Rays which I project to each of you for these two weeks. I

assure you, these Rays are no idle fancy, but a tangible Current of Energy

containing in It all things, and blessing you according to your acceptance.

I clothe you in this Mantle of Light—within It is all Power. I hold you close in My

Mighty Embrace, and " 'I AM' with you every hour."

Mighty Embrace, and " 'I AM' with you every hour."

Saint Germain: Again have you been blest by that Electrifying Presence. I need not

add to it unless there are questions.

When you realize that "I AM" is the only Presence, Power, and Ability to think in

your brain cells, and you are accepting only the Activity of the "I AM Presence,"

then you make It the All-Power, fulfilling every outer desire. Therefore if you desire

something needful in the outer activity, it is the "I AM Presence" producing it

through your conscious demand—which has nothing to do with so-called human


Say often: " 'I AM' always loving obedience unto the Light."

Everything will become more alert, more quickened, and more powerfully

protected as you use the "I AM Presence" more and more.

The Great Central Sun Magnet: The more one is conscious of this Great Magnet

working, the more powerfully It acts in his own sphere.

An awakened individual never uses a destructive force. When the Master of Suerne

projected the force and the army was killed, he simply projected it for the

protection of his people, and the destructive qualities which the others brought

with them to slay and kill qualified the force sent out by the Master, and it

destroyed those who sent their destructive qualities out. You can see how easily it

would do that, when they came to destroy.

Every individual, if he has understanding, has a right to protect himself. The

students should always be taught never to judge the Action of a Greater

Intelligence than themselves.

When phenomenon is produced by an Ascended Master, the Activity so transcends

the intelligence witnessing it that it is most difficult for them to be sustained in

the acceptance of the actual Truth of It. It is utterly impossible to satisfy the outer

activity of the mind.

Projected vision: The etheric record is reclothed in substance. You cannot reclothe

a record of scenes except in their own environment. The individual's record goes

with him wherever he goes and can be reclothed anywhere he is.

BENEDICTION: Thou Mighty, Infinite Presence! Thou Wondrous Brother of Light,

Wisdom, Love and Power! We give thanks for Thy Radiant Presence, glorifying all

who look to Thee, and in that Glorious Presence, we send to all mankind Thy

Enfolding Light, lifting them into Thy Presence always.
