The moon rules the night side of life and is the lesser
the reflective light of the solar energy of
In its reflective state it exerts enormous
control over the tides and over the water element.
Luna, the moon, 5
the great whirling satellite
that rules the night, 6
governs in part, then, the
emotional body of man and can easily become either his greatest
enemy or his best friend. 7
For when properly harnessed,
the energies of the moon (being put under his feet) (Revelation
can help him to achieve alchemical control
over his emotions (over his energy-in-motion). 9
see how this is so.
The moon reflects the astral body of earth. 11
When dealing with the moon, 12
then, we deal with the
reflected light of the sun. 13
When the astral body is
under the dominion of the Christ, its power becomes limitless.
When its purified energies are magnified in turn by the
which is nothing more than a giant reflector, 16
their power is multiplied in almost infinite proportion.
But until such time as the mass consciousness is ruled
by the light of the sun instead of being ruled by the night, 18
the moon will reflect the astral effluvia of the planet. 19
Thus men will continue to be the victims of their own horrendous
miscreations, and 20
that to an even greater degree
during the cycle of the full moon.
21 Now, the alchemist uses his
purified consciousness as a reflector of solar energies 22
much like the moon reflects the light of the sun.
23 The waters of his mind reflect the light of the day
and the night 24 even as the waters of the sea
reflect the golden pathway of both the sun and the moon.
25 But the Christ consciousness, the prism of purity
like the "sea of glass," (Revelation 4:6) 26
filters out the impurities of the moon even as it refracts the
light of the sun.
27 All energy being God's energy, 28 the
humanly misqualified energies reflected by the moon (sent back
to the earth from whence they came, according to karmic law) 29
may be freed from the impositions of the carnal mind 30
through the process of transmutation.
31 They may then be used to create, 32 in the
tradition of the Great Alchemist, 33 more perfect
works of art until the patterns in the heavens transform the
patterns in the earth 34 and the moon becomes a golden
orb of rarified power.
35 Most of you know only too well that when your
emotions become disturbed over outer conditions, 36
feelings, or concepts, there is a moment when you are yet able
to wrest control of your energies 37 from your own
38 Subsequently, if these energies are permitted to
continue to rage unabated, 39 that moment of control
is lost; 40 and then it is easy for people to do, 41
to think. 42 or to say that which they will one day
Conversely, most of you are aware of the great joy and
that has come to your souls when you have been
able to accomplish something for someone else. 45
happens because deep within yourself there is a loving desire to
serve your fellow man.
This desire is what prompted the descent of the
the sun of David, in his role as the Messias
of old. 48
The shepherd king, 49
a man after
God's own heart, 50
communed with God and prepared
himself for greater service as he tended his sheep. 51
Nowhere was the luster of his soul more apparent than in the
beauty of his meditations upon the Spirit of the Lord recorded
in the Book of Psalms.
One of the most skillful ways in which the tired
businessman or executive, 53
the frustrated mother or
the confused young man or woman can find
integration and wholeness for themselves 55
develop the discipline of being able to direct their emotions 56
to do for them exactly what they want. 57
discipline will completely change their outlook, 58
they will then face life with joyous expectancy, 59
For example, if it is love for another that you would
then you must always guard against that love
which is selfish, 62
which would exact from the beloved
the expectancies of your own mind and heart 63
ever understanding the givingness of love.
In order to love as God loves, 65
first give freedom to all parts of life, 66
and then you must place your trust, 68
as does a nestling bird, 69
in the heart of God, 70
in the heart of goodness and mercy.
Having given all, you will then receive the most
joyful, eternal gifts from God that you could ever imagine 72
and some even beyond that which you could imagine.
These will come not only through the chalice of your
own heart, 74
but also through the hearts of your
If, then, you would truly love. 76
learn to discipline the base emotions of selfishness, envy,
jealousy, resentment, stubbornness, and ingratitude.
We urge, therefore, at this juncture in our alchemical
that the control of the emotions be
for the emotions will play a very
important role 80
in the creative cloud action 81
which we are considering and out of which we are functioning.
The only way to be truly happy is to give oneself
totally to the universe and to God, 83
at the same time
being aware of and expecting from God the return gift of one's
One of the greatest dangers in the religious quest has
been brought about as men have given themselves to God, 85
thinking that that was all they had to do. 86
understanding the responsibilities of free will, 87
then acted the part of the nebulous ninny. 88 Having no will of
their own, 89
they would flip and flop back and forth, 90
blown by every wind, obsessed with what we will call the law of
"For if the trumpet give an uncertain
sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?" (1
Men should understand that although their surrender to
God be complete, 93
following surrender they must wait
for the fiat of bestowal that is pronounced by the God Presence
as a restatement of the blessing given by God at the
birth of his offspring: "Thou art my beloved Son: this day have
I begotten thee." (Psalms 2:7)
This takes place when one has relinquished the control
of his four lower bodies to his Christ Self, 96
enabling his True Self, 97
the Christ, to obey the fiat
"Take dominion over the earth!" 98
the earth being one's
own footstool kingdom, the four lower bodies.
Remember that even Jesus the Christ came to the moment
of his anointing. 100
The Holy Spirit descended and the
voice of God renewed the ancient covenant "This is my beloved
Son, in whom I AM well pleased." (Matthew 3:17)
This is the timeless fiat of creation uttered from the
foundation of the world, 102
reconsecrating the soul who
has pledged to renew in service his vow taken at inner levels to
do the will of God.
Therefore, when man's right to function as a son of
God is restored, 104
the moment of creativity is born
because he has once again recognized the power of God's love to
forgive his sins 105
(to set aside his karma until such
time as he has gained enough self-mastery to stand, face, and
conquer his human creation).
Now the bond of life within itself weds him to the
highest purposes of alchemy 107
and that, mind you,
without ever robbing him of his true identity.
What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole
world through the use of alchemy and lose his soul? (Matthew
We ask the students to understand that gaining
control of the soul (of the energies composing one's identity
pattern) is one of the most essential functions of alchemy and
that this control is gained through surrender and through
When the Christ entered the Holy City riding upon "a
colt, the foal of an ass," (Zechariah 9:9) 111
we mentioned in our last lesson, 112
his mien was one of
utter humility: 113
yet he was crowned by God and man
with the highest honors.
And so it is essential that we develop in the
students those same Christlike qualities that will make them
pillars in the temple of God 115 that cannot be moved by human
no matter what their guise: criticism,
condemnation, judgment, self-pity, gossip, treachery, tyranny,
or human deceit.
The alchemist must be oblivious to all human conduct
yet not unaware of worldly thought to the point where he plays
the fop. 118
To him the fulfillment of the fiat "Be wise
as serpents and harmless as doves!" (Matthew 10:16)
the order of every day.
But we are concerned with the sinews of mission, 120
and the mission is freedom for all. 121 If we would have freedom
be the joy of all, 122
then we must give freedom to all,
for then none can exclude freedom from us.
It is therefore to the passions of freedom that our
experiments in alchemy must be dedicated. 125
rise to emotional control; for when God said, "Take dominion
over the earth!" 126
He meant individual dominion over
one's energies, one's consciousness, and one's four lower
Collective dominion comes about when the contributing
spirit of the group, the nation, the planet 128
recognizing all that it has received from life 129
joyously offers itself and all that it has received to the Great
Spirit of life.
At that point, man the individual and man the
collective unit ponder the enrichment of the Real Self 131
and the true mystical identity of the group through the increase
of individual talents. 132
These gifts of God, when
multiplied, are like stars in the firmament 133
that glow in the grand design of universal destiny.
When man becomes one with God, 135
realizes that he truly is God. 136
This is not
blasphemy, but the fruit of total surrender.
The return gift of Life's own identity, 138
as God gives himself to his son, 139
is far greater than
the token sacrifice of mortality left on the altar by the
beloved son. 140
Nevertheless, it is typical of the
Deity to be the Great Giver 141
and thus to precipitate
the highest alchemical manifestation 142
the prism of
the Christ consciousness.
This must be and always is the reward for the
relinquishment of human error 144
and the full
realization of the divine life in every man. 145
nature then trembles within the cup of the Christ mind.
The heart of the Christ is brimming with the creative
which pours out the unifying experience that
identifies him with life, 148
him with the alchemist, 149
and the alchemist with him.

The Second Coming of Christ is antedated by the
fulfillment of the prophecy "One shall be taken, and the other
left" (Matthew 24:40)
For when one is taken and another is left, it denotes
that the world lieth yet in wickedness 159
and that only
the few have accepted the kingdom.
But when the Second Coming of Christ comes to the
quickened world, 161
it will be because the nature of
the Divine has become understood as a priceless gift of freedom
to every man.
When this miracle of Christ-love is produced in the
it will be because the students of alchemy 164

Imbued with the fires of the Holy Spirit, 169
their minds will then become a cosmic reactor, 170
central furnace of universal ideas for freedom 171
for the breaking of the chains of bondage that a recalcitrant
humanity have forged.

of the Ascended Masters are offering their energies freely for
