Ascended Master Saint Germain (5), July 15, 2007 through Kim Michaels.

 

Most gracious ladies and gentlemen, I Saint Germain come today on a lighter note than the previous days. For truly, you have broken through to a higher level of consciousness and you have been instrumental in breaking through the density found here in this area of Los Angeles, and in California as well, thereby giving the people in this area an opportunity to rise higher, to think more clearly than they have been able to think for a very long time.

For my beloved, I must tell you that there is no power greater – currently available – than the rosaries and invocations of Mother Mary. There is a power in these invocations that is unsurpassed by any other spiritual technique—for the very reason that they embody the Alpha and the Omega of God. Where you have both the affirmations and the rhythmic sections that are repeated, thereby invoking the light and directing it through the affirmations to the specific conditions.


The Word will judge the elite
Yet, beyond that is an even more important facet of the invocations. For is it not stated in this latest invocation that the Word itself will judge the power elite and those who are not willing to change their consciousness? So you see, there is immense value in someone in the physical octave being willing to speak the Word physically as you do in these invocations. When you speak that Word, the Word will reverberate through the mass consciousness, and it will be a judgment in the sense that people are given an opportunity – even if they are not consciously aware of this – to accept or reject the Word spoken.

And thus, you will see that there are rings upon rings, spreading through the waters of the collective consciousness. And as people are hit with a wave of the Word spoken, some will wake up and realize that a new day has dawned. Whereas others will become even more anchored in the rigidity of their consciousness by rejecting the new wave, the new ideas, the new energies of Aquarius.

 

The need to overcome division in society
My Beloved, the message that I want to speak this morning is to comment further on the potential for the spreading of a new awareness from this area of California. The one area where there needs to be a new awareness in the United States is in the fact that in a Golden Age there is no division in society. In a Golden Age, precisely what makes it golden is that there has been attained a state of oneness in society.

This, of course, has many facets and many aspects. But of particular importance is the realization in the people, that the power elite has always used the divide-and-conquer strategy to divide the people into warring groups and set them up against each other. And this division of society takes many forms. But one of the most important ones to expose and transcend in this age is the division between science and religion—between spirit and matter. 

This nation is founded on the principle that all people were given inalienable rights by their Creator. Meaning that there is a higher authority than any authority on earth, be it the President or the Congress or the hidden elite that seeks to rule society behind surface appearances. If the respect for a higher authority erodes, well then the freedoms that are described in the United States’ constitution will also be eroded and taken away from the people. There simply is no way around this. It is one of those instances where – even though I am not in black-and-white thinking – I must tell you that the issue is either-or. Either you have respect for an authority beyond any human power or institution, or your freedoms will be eroded, slowly but surely.


Uniting science and religion
How can we, in the current climate of the United States, preserve or rather reinvigorate that respect for some higher authority, that cannot be manipulated by the power elite, the human ego, the duality consciousness? Well, it cannot be done as long as science and religion are divided and therefore present two opposing views of life, the creation of life, the existence of life. It is not a matter of restoring religion to a dominant role in American society. For, as many people in America are aware, the founding fathers were very aware of the potential that religion could become a factor for control—as they saw that it had been in Europe for centuries. So they wanted to set up a constitution, where one particular religion could not dominate and control the government.

Yet this has led to the emergence of scientific materialism, which denies anything beyond the material universe. And therefore, by its very nature, it must deny the existence of any higher authority, that could give people rights that are beyond being taken away by any institution on earth. And therefore, science is, in its current form of materialism, in direct opposition to the freedoms of the United States’ constitution. Even though it must also be said that religion, in its traditional form of being an exclusivist religion claiming to have the only truth, is also in opposition to the freedoms of the U.S. Constitution.

This is again the divide-and-conquer strategy of dividing society into those who see themselves as religious in the traditional sense, and those who see themselves as scientifically minded, therefore being materialists or atheists. It is an illusion to believe, that you can preserve freedom in an atheistic or materialistic society. There are those who are unwilling to see this truth. They believe that atheists can be moral people and ethical people. And while this is true, I must tell you that it is not possible to preserve freedom in an atheistic society. If you want to see proof of this, then look to the Soviet Union or China, and any reasonable person will be willing to admit, that in an atheistic philosophy and ideology, freedom WILL be taken away by the state. For there is no higher authority than the state in those societies. 

You can also look at history and look at how the Catholic church in Europe kept that continent in the Dark Ages for centuries through the control of the Pope and the Catholic hierarchy. And thus, you can see that you cannot allow one religion to dominate a society, for then suddenly that religion takes the place of the state. And now there is no higher authority than the Catholic church—which even though it claims to be the church of Christ – claiming that the Pope is the vicar of Christ – any reasonable person willing to look at history, will see that this clearly was not the case during the Middle Ages. For certainly, Christ could not have condoned the warring, the torture, the Inquisition and the many other abuses of power.


Finding the universal spirituality all beyond religions
So what do we do in this day and age, to bring forth a society based on a view of life, based on a paradigm, that is neither traditional religion nor materialism, but transcends these two dualistic opposites, and comes into a higher understanding of the origin of life and the purpose of life? The only solution is Christ discernment that leads to the recognition, that behind the outer religions is a deeper understanding of spirituality, a deeper approach, that is universal in nature and that runs like an ever-flowing stream. And every once in a while, someone has been able to dip into that stream and bring a teaching into the physical.

And although the teaching came from the stream, and thus has some validity, the teaching could, from the very beginning, be colored by the culture and the mindset of the people to whom it was given. But the teaching could also follow the pattern that you see in almost every religion of gradually becoming rigid, therefore not flowing along with the stream. It is necessary that a critical mass of people in this age become able to look beyond the outer religions, and see the universal stream flowing behind all surface appearances. And these are the people who are already well aware of the weaknesses of traditional religion, but who have not yet quite seen that instead of rejecting all spirituality and religion – jumping into the opposite dualistic polarity of materialism – there is an alternative. Which is to transcend duality and lock in to the ever-flowing River of Life—thereby bringing forth a universal spirituality, that will not violate the separation of church and state that the founding fathers correctly saw as necessary.

In other words, as we have explained before, the separation of church and state does not mean the separation of spirituality and the state. For again, there must be that recognition of a higher authority, a higher truth, which is the Logos, and the truth of the Logos can be brought forth through the Living Word.


Oracles in the Aquarian age
Now, my beloved, in past ages you have seen societies where there was much more of a unity between spirituality and government, in the sense that even the rulers of the people would listen to certain prophets or oracles or seers, who would bring forth the Living Word from the Logos itself. Yet we are not looking in the Aquarian age to recreate a society like that, in the sense that there was only one or a few oracles or prophets.

We are looking, in the Aquarian age, to establish a society, where at least the top 10 percent of the people all have such Christ discernment, that they can recognize the Living Word and be the open doors for the Living Word to stream forth. Not necessarily as you hear it now spoken in a dictation, but many times spoken in situations in life, such as in the Senate, or the Congress, or political debates, or the media. Where you have people who dare to speak out with the power and the truth of the Holy Spirit. And you have people who hear this and who recognize the truth and the validity of the Word itself, regardless of whether they understand where it is coming from.

In other words, I Saint Germain am the hierarch of the Aquarian age, but I am not on an ego trip, my beloved. I do not need all people on earth to recognize the existence and the reality of Saint Germain, or to worship me as some kind of God. I only need people to tune in to the universal reality, the truth of the Living Word that resonates in their hearts and their inner beings. And therefore, they are willing to bring that truth into the physical and let it be the guideline for every aspect of society and their personal lives. So that their personal lives are in alignment with their own higher beings, and so that society is in alignment with the higher reality that is beyond what any human mind can conceive in its fullness.

And that then creates a society, where there is no single individual or no institution which can control that society. The power elite can suppress the Living Word, they can distort the dead word that has been created by the suppression of the Living Word, but as long as the Living Word is flowing through a sufficient number of people, they cannot destroy or distort that Word. For the Living Word cannot be put in a box, and it will always challenge status quo—and thereby challenge society and individuals to come up higher in consciousness.

 

A new understanding of elitism as a driving force in history
Precisely because, as I have explained earlier, there are so many people embodied in the state of California who are close to the level of consciousness that is needed, well, then there is the potential that California can become the forerunner for this new awareness, this new mindset, this new way of looking at life. It can even come in the form of a new analysis of history, where you simply look at history and recognize the existence of a power elite that are blinded and controlled by the human ego—and therefore through the outplaying of this psychological mechanism have attempted to dominate the population for thousands of years. 

And by the population becoming aware of this mechanism, well even that in itself will bring forth a new day, where the power elite cannot rule behind the scenes. And I tell you that the power elite can only rule when they can stay hidden from the people. For once they are exposed, well then the people will no longer accept the elite, will no longer accept the lies that allow the elite to stay in power by manipulating the situation.


A new approach to politics in California
As a couple of examples of how this can outplay itself, let me start with the political situation. There are people in these United States who have become so attached to a conservative agenda, that they see California as a threat because they see it as a liberal state. There are literally people who wish that California would slide into the ocean. Because they are so threatened in their conservative political beliefs, that they are literally willing to see millions of people die, so that they can preserve what they believe is the only true politics of the United States—but which is truly the politics of the elite wanting to maintain status quo.

On the other hand, it must be recognized that liberalism is not the answer, for it is just another dualistic extreme. So I do not look to California to secede from the Union. But I do look to California to come up higher, to come beyond duality, and to find a new approach to politics that transcends the traditional two-party system, and therefore becomes a catalyst that will spread throughout the nation. Because by California going beyond the conservative-liberal duality and finding a new balance, well then California will no longer be seen as a liberal, New Age state, but will be seen as having found a new approach, a balanced approach.

And thus, what can be started here in this state can spread, for certainly there are people in every state that are attuned to the new energies and the consciousness of Aquarius. So it is my hope that California can transcend duality in politics and find its highest potential in a balanced middle-way approach to politics. And the middle way is not the midpoint between liberal and conservative; it is transcending the duality of liberalism and conservatism, and thereby finding a new approach.

I am not necessarily saying that there needs to be the emergence of a new political party, although this is certainly one way to solve the current gridlock. But it can also be possible that the people will take command over their traditional parties and demand that those parties stop being the parties for the elite, and get back to being what they should have been all along—namely the parties of the people.


The need for a new type of politician
My Beloved, there is an immense potential for new creative solutions to be brought forth. For there are people in embodiment who have the expertise and the intimate knowledge of the political system, the economic system and every aspect of society. Again we do not look for this to come from one central authority. But we do look to you who are the most spiritually aware people to hold the immaculate concept, that those who have the expertise will emerge and dare to speak out, dare to go beyond the norm and become a different kind of politician—who is not following the norms, that have been established now by the power elite for many a decade, for how a politician should behave in order to get along in the political system.

You have seen a few people who have had the courage to go beyond the norm. You have even seen some of the candidates that are now running for President and how the people have responded to those who are willing to go beyond established politics and bring a wave of fresh air. But I tell you that there are candidates that are not even in the running right now, because the shift in consciousness has not reached the point, where they can even be recognized or where they will even have the courage to stand out and bring a new form of politics.

You have seen in the state of California how the people rejected a governor who represented everything that was wrong with the old ways of politics – the corruption and the wheeling and dealing – and instead elected a governor who was more of the people, because he was not part of the political establishment. And although this governor does not embody everything I am talking about – because he tends to imitate rather than being attuned and being the open door for creative ideas – yet I tell you that it is a step in the right direction.

And if the people will keep thinking beyond the traditional extremes, then there are already other candidates who can quickly emerge and bring California to an even higher level of the willingness to go beyond traditional politics, the willingness to admit that things are simply not working in the traditional way. And we need new solutions and we need the people who dare to bring forth those solutions.

 

Education in the Aquarian age
One other area that I wish to comment on is the area of education. My Beloved, for a very long time there has been a tendency among spiritual and religious people to think that the only way to renew education is to create private schools that are based on religious or spiritual principles. And you have even seen a certain initiative from the Bush administration to give more funding to private schools. Yet I wish to throw an idea into your minds. I wish you to consider whether going with private schools is really the way of the Aquarian age?

For can you not see – when you look at history, especially the history of England – how private schools can very easily become a breeding ground for elitism? Because those who can afford to send their children to private schools tend to have an elitist attitude. And they tend to want their children to be brought up feeling that they are above and beyond the general population. There is a value in a public school system, which throws together people from all walks of society. So that the classroom becomes a miniature of what these United States are supposed to be—namely a melting pot, where we mix everyone together so that we can get beyond the rigidity of the elitist systems that we have seen in the past. So I point to an alternative to devoting your attention and your creative energy into creating private schools.

I must tell you, that there are educators, who are familiar with the ascended masters’ teachings, and who have some very good ideas for how education can be renewed. Yet if you keep focusing on creating private schools, that quite frankly do not currently have a realistic potential for spreading across the nation, well then you are in essence chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Whereas I must tell you that your energies and your attention could be used in a more constructive – in a more practical, realistic – manner by seeing the private school as a testing ground for ideas that could then be implemented in the public school systems. 

And that will mean, that you will have to create schools that are not based on a particular spiritual belief system, even the ascended master belief system, but have found a more universal approach to spirituality, that can eventually become acceptable in the public school system. For as I have said, if we need a more universal spirituality in government, well then we certainly also need it in education. But for it to ever become acceptable, it must be universal and not focused on specific people or specific doctrines or dogmas, or even a specific belief system.

 

Let go of the dream of an ultimate system
Once again, I hurl the challenge at you to be willing to question everything. And I tell you that even the spiritual people can have a tendency to become rigid, and thinking that now we have found the highest expression of truth, and thus we do not really need to dip into the universal stream, the River of Life, to bring forth an even higher expression, or an even higher application of it for practical matters in society. 

As I have explained, there is no standing still. The River of Life moves on. There is no ultimate system of government or education that could ever be brought forth on this planet. For my beloved, as I attempted to explain yesterday, when those who are the leaders of a Golden Age society begin to believe that they have found some ultimate system – and that they are the elite who are now seeing it as their job to maintain the system – well, at that point the Golden Age society begins to stagnate and the collapse is only a matter of time.

Thus, let go of the dream of an ultimate educational system, an ultimate state of the economy, an ultimate political system! It will never happen on earth!

It is a dualistic dream projected onto the people by those who are trapped in the serpentine consciousness and are attempting to take heaven by force and establish paradise on earth. When in reality this cannot happen as a static society, but only by creating a society that is constantly transcending itself, thereby raising up the earth to become part of the spiritual realm, as the entire material sphere ascends, as described in Maitreya's book. This is a fundamentally different approach than chasing the pipe dream of some static state of perfection in this realm.

My closing thought for this discourse is to hurl at you the challenge to recognize that in a golden-age society, nothing stands still. And thus, you cannot be attached to anything. You cannot allow yourself to believe that, "Oh if we only achieve this particular state of education, or this particular state of a religious movement, or this particular political system, then we don't need to be alert anymore."

My Beloved, the reality of it is that there is no stillstand in Christhood. There is no getting comfortable in Christhood. For Christhood is an ongoing process of flowing with the River of Life. And when you accept this, you can find peace in constant self-transcendence, rather than seeking to establish the false peace of stopping the growth and maintaining status quo—thinking that status quo can give you peace, when in reality it is only by being in – and being one with – the River of Life that you will ever find peace. Thus, I thank you for your attention and for providing the platform for this release of teachings, that must be spoken in the physical for them to have the maximum impact on the collective consciousness. I seal you for now, until I shall return again shortly.
