Acropolis Sophia has determined for itself the bold objective of setting before the eyes of the world a living, breathing, tangible, Shining Example of a microcosm of society patterned after the Divine Ideal of Life as presently lived amongst the Ascended Masters in their Octave of Perfection. This ideal we have affectionately christened The Ascended Master Way of Life! This bold assertion is patterned after the forthright example of uncompromising Perfection set forth by the Masters themselves for us to emulate.
Whence cometh such Perfection? By understanding that there is but one Eternal True State of Being – a consciously sustained and maintained awareness of God Reality! This glorious and sublime consciousness is referred to as the Ascended Consciousness residing in a world of its own known as the Ascended Master Octave. Here all Life is One! Every Master abiding here holds an awareness of absolute Perfection and categorically denies any Power to every lesser appearance, most especially the relative polarities of good and evil.
Disciples of Sophia know this to be their own Divine prerogative as well. They are encouraged to cultivate the habit of engendering perfect thoughts and feelings every second of every day, regardless of the pressure of outer appearances. What great Attainment is this! To understand once and for all the absolute necessity to retrain ones own consciousness, giving conscious recognition and power to Perfection hour by hour throughout the day – allowing only those invited guests robed in beauty and splendor to enter the Great Castle of heart and mind.
The Lord created Wisdom in the beginning before the world.
Wisdom never fails.
The Tabernacle in Jerusalem was Her Power.
In the Beloved City Wisdom rests among Her People.
The great Host of Ascended Masters who have guided the expansion of the Light in humanity on from the beginning are no figment of anyone's imagination. They are Real, Visible, Tangible, Glorious Living Breathing God-Free Beings of such Love, Wisdom and Power that the human mind gasps at the immensity of it. They work everywhere in the universe with complete Freedom and limitless Power, to do naturally all that the average individual considers supernatural.
Personal association with one or more Ascended Masters produces an intense feeling of Love and Gratitude that can never be put into words. They wield immense Power and manipulate such concentrated force as to stagger the imagination of anyone fortunate enough to come under their sponsorship and association. Following such contact with their Living Presence, there can be but one overwhelming desire replacing all other desires and that is to BE ALL THAT THEY ARE! Once a student has truly, even for a fraction of a second, experienced the Ecstatic Bliss radiating from an Ascended Being, there is nothing in human experience that one would not endure or sacrifice in order to reach their Height of Attainment and express the selfsame Dominion and Love.
The Ascended Masters are the Guardians of the race of men, and as in the world of physical education, various grades of teachers are provided to guide the development of the individual's growth from childhood to maturity, so do the Ascended Masters of Perfection exist to educate and help the individual that he too may expand his consciousness beyond ordinary, human expression. Thus, he develops his superhuman attributes, until like the student graduating from college, the one under the care and instruction of an Ascended Master graduates out of his humanity into the full, continuous expression of his Divinity.
These Glorious Beings, who guard and help the evolving human race, are called the Ascended Masters of Love and Perfection. They are all the word Master implies because by bringing forth the Love, Wisdom and Power of the God Self within, they manifest their Mastery over all that is human. Hence, they have Ascended into the next Octave above the human, which is Pure, Eternal, All-Powerful Divinity. Here they express the All-Knowing Mind and All-Seeing Eye of God from whom no thing can be hidden. Each Master knows and sees all concerning the students whom He has elected to assist to their own Immortal Freedom.
"WE DO NOT WISH TO WAIT ANOTHER MILLION YEARS FOR A GOLDEN AGE! This is the Dawning and you are witnessing the coming over the horizon of the new Sun. Be warmed by that Sun! Be nourished by that Sun! Know that you are a part of that Sun! When the Flame from that Sun is nourished, fanned, loved on the altar of your Heart, you will know the corresponding Vibration of the Sun-behind-the-Sun. Fan the Fires of Freedom. May they burn brightly that you might ignite the Fires of Freedom where you are, that you might be a Torch Bearer ready to invoke the Flame at the call of the need from Hierarchy.
"Beloved Ones, as much as you are an individual, and as much as you may feel that you walk the path alone, it is only alone in the aspect of gaining Mastery. You must realize that the larger Antahkarana of Light is also part of your True Identity, your greater family. Cosmic Law dictates that you recognize the Individuality of your Being. For without this, there would not be the Mastery, there would not be the Victory.
"But once that Individualization has been mastered, you realize there is the greater consideration of the whole, and that you stand as an individual Flame in the center of the whole – the Oneness of all Life! You feel your Individual God Presence, you move forward with the Chord of your own Cosmic Tone resounding into space, but you are also part of the greater Symphony of Life! Many times you will have to conform to the rhythm, the speed, and the volume of the conductor and that conductor is Hierarchy. Yes, beloved hearts, Hierarchy!
"All the way to the Central Sun there are Ascended Masters and Cosmic Beings that We are aware of, having greater Attainment than even Ourselves. You can choose to ignore Them. You can choose to go your own way. Or you can choose to listen to Their Counsel as would a child sitting on the knee of a grandparent with all the wonderful words of wisdom of the practical experience of Life! The Ascended Masters know your travails. They know where you can stand and where you might fall. Many times They will counsel you beforehand to save you the time and the energy of having to repeat a cycle again and again.
"When once you have come this close to the Ascended Master Vibration, to be able to sit in My Presence, to hear My Dictation, to understand and know the Law that is written on the very center of your heart, then you have a great responsibility to respond or not. I repeat, where more is given, more is expected and the greater the responsibility. You did not come into embodiment to sit at home by the fire all cozy and warm and cuddled up with your slippers, reading of the Ascended Masters, then turning off the light, falling asleep and starting your day over again in like manner.
"We did not bring you to this point just to have you be so self-centered as to fail to think of God in your fellow man, of God in the planet that needs you! Yes, life will go on. Yes the trees will grow, and they will continue to go through their yearly cycles as long as there is sunlight, as long as there is rain. But can you honestly sit in your seat knowing that there is a greater picture for your lifestream and not engage to the fullest? And not apply Cosmic Law as you know it? Will you forevermore sit on the sidelines of Life as though watching a movie or reading a book or watching the trees grow?"
